The Future of Litigation
Covid-19 has affected all areas of our lives. The disruption it has caused and the impact on the way we operate will give rise to both new threats and opportunities for businesses.
In addition, businesses are likely to find that speedy resolution of disputes will be difficult to achieve via the Courts due to a significant backlog in cases.
CMS takes a look at recent key developments and predicted litigation trends that apply across a broad spectrum of sectors to assist businesses in identifying and meeting these challenges.
