IMS Launches New Study To Assess Impact of COVID-19 On Commercial Litigation Community

Analysis Aims To Provide Insights On How COVID-19 Is and May Shape Commercial Litigation Across Types of Firms, Practice Areas, and Markets

Pensacola, Fla.  |   IMS ExpertServices announced the launch of a new study designed to garner insights into how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the commercial litigation community.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has brought disruption across industries and markets, ushered record unemployment in the U.S., and created unprecedented challenges for commercial litigators, law firms, clients, and courts.

The study is designed to create better understanding around how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting several areas including the retention of commercial litigators and experts, the types of guidance law firms and practitioners are providing to clients related to COVID-19, how specific practice areas and markets throughout the U.S. are being impacted, and the likely effect on the complexity of disputes arising from the pandemic across practice areas.

As part of the study, a flash survey is being used to collect input from private practice attorneys, in-house counsel, experts, industry leaders, and other commercial litigation stakeholders.

Following the collection and analysis of responses from the survey, IMS will host a special virtual analysts’ briefing to discuss the findings and their implications. The briefing will feature discussion and guidance from a panel of seasoned industry analysts, practitioners, and experts.

Attorneys, experts, and industry stakeholders are welcome to complete the survey. Participants who complete the survey will be eligible to receive the findings once published.

Questions about this study can be directed to Teresa Barber, Director of Industry Relations with IMS ExpertServices, at tbarber@expertservices.com.
