2019 Winter | ILR Research Review | Volume 6, Issue 3

As legal complexity and uncertainty grow, so do opportunities for the plaintiffs’ bar. This edition of the ILR Research Review looks at data privacy and bellwether trials in multidistrict litigation, two legal trends that are driving complexity and uncertainty for companies. It also looks at the spread of third party litigation funding around the world, which threatens to supercharge the ability of the plaintiffs’ bar to capitalize on the situation. As with all ILR research, these papers thoroughly analyze the nuances of these problematic trends, then offer concrete legislative and rules-based solutions to address them.

In addition, this Review covers ILR’s flagship research report synthesizing input from over 1,300 general counsel and senior corporate officers at large companies that generates a ranking of state lawsuit climates, as well as state-based legal reforms to help low-ranking states improve and keep high-ranking states on the right track.
