Seizing the Moment: Focusing on Litigation Management in a Litigation Crisis (posted 02/21)

COVID-19 has disrupted civil jury trials across the United States. The backlog of civil and criminal cases continues to grow rapidly. This litigation backlog will not suddenly disappear, and litigation will not magically return to a pre-COVID “business as usual.” In this environment, forward-looking clients and attorneys recognize that innovation is both possible and necessary. Outdated definitions of what is “normal” in litigation, even before shelter-in-place altered litigation, failed to produce adequate results at an acceptable cost. The advantage belongs – and will increasingly go – to the attorney, the firm, and the organization that can innovate in the management of litigation.
