Menlo Park, CA — Lex Machina, a LexisNexis company, today releases its 2023 Contracts: Commercial Litigation Report. The report examines trends in commercial litigation in federal district courts and appellate courts. Focusing on the three-year period from 2020 to 2022, it surveys emerging trends in case filings, venues, judges, law firms, attorneys, parties, timing metrics, case resolutions, findings, and damages. The report often focuses on different sets of data, e.g., filtering cases in order to provide analytics on general contracts cases, commercial cases, non-commercial cases, and contracts class action cases filed in the federal district courts, along with contracts cases docketed in the federal appellate courts.
“Lex Machina’s module on contracts cases is expansive and comprehensive,” said Karen Chadwick, Lex Machina’s contracts legal data expert and editor of the report. “With the myriad of filters provided by the platform, legal professionals can choose to focus on any number of subsets of cases. That’s why we often choose to turn the spotlight on commercial litigation, a crucial and nuanced area of law. The litigation trends we unearth in the changing patterns of commercial litigation often provide fascinating insights on the interplay between different practice areas of law and the circumstances in the world around us.”
Highlights from the report include:
