Global Corporate Disputes Trends Report 2021

Last updated on 29 June 2021

DLA Piper’s Corporate Disputes group has produced a global trends report to expand on the corporate disputes overview contained in the special edition M&A Trends Report, addressing the COVID-19 impact on transactions in 2020. Our new report provides a country narrative guide to address the impact of COVID-19 on transactions and trends in global corporate disputes.

(Read an overview of the Global M&A in 2020: Impact of COVID-19 Report and request a full version here.)

In this report, our dedicated disputes practice partners from across the globe comment on trends already observed and set out their expectations for the future. Given the pandemic is dominating strategy for many businesses, our report addresses the impact of COVID-19 on corporate disputes and looks for potential points of comparison with past crises. We also look at other emerging trends, for example, cash flow issues within businesses, and an increase in the use of third-party funding in both litigation and arbitration.
