WASHINGTON, Jan. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce the publication of its third annual "Litigation Forecast: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know in the Coming Year," and the introduction of its first-ever "Regulatory Forecast 2015: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know in the Coming Year."
The Litigation Forecast continues to provide an in-depth look at critical litigation issues faced by corporations and businesses and features a number of cases to watch in 2015 for their potential impact on a wide range of legal areas that affect companies and industries, including antitrust, class actions, environmental, government contracts, intellectual property, labor and employment, white collar, and energy. As in previous years, the report also features a jurisdictional analysis map, which breaks down key data and figures on legal trends from districts around the nation. The Regulatory Forecast explores key legislative trends in Congress and the executive branch that have potential influence on a variety of important regulatory issues for corporations and businesses in the upcoming year, including compliance, health care, and environmental policy.
"The two reports are an important way that our Litigation and Regulatory Departments are reaching out to our clients and industry to provide insight and analysis about the litigation and regulatory landscape across a wide range of sectors," said Kent A. Gardiner, Crowell & Moring Chairman. "In the Litigation Forecast, we dig into dynamic issues impacting businesses in legal areas ranging from the environment to cybersecurity to insurance to labor & employment, and an array of other specialty areas. Our Regulatory Forecast provides a diverse look at national and international regulatory trends that are also impacting many industries in ways that affect the bottom line and business success. We hope companies will find the Regulatory Forecast's feature article about the state of play in Washington – 'The Year of the Regulator' – to be of particular interest as it explores enforcement activities that often drive litigation."
In all, over 70 of the firm's attorneys, directors, and advisors contributed to the reports, which is available on the firm's website along with information on the related webinar series featuring panel discussions and keynote presentations throughout the year on the identified trends and additional topics.
