US litigation support survey results

U.S. Litigation Support Trends

U.S. Legal Support, a leading provider of litigation support services, released the results of their recent nationwide survey of U.S. law firms, insurance carriers, and enterprise legal organisations on the current state and usage of litigation support services. Conducted in August 2022, the survey garnered over 1,100 responses and speaks to high-level trends impacting the legal profession today.

Defined within the survey as "The outsourced parts of litigation that help keep the wheels of justice turning. Anything from remote depositions, court reporting, interpreting, transcription, retrieval of important records, trial consulting and more." litigation support services are a key component of the legal industry, but one rarely studied.

Statistics were gathered via an online questionnaire and revealed four core themes currently top of mind for the legal industry, including:

  1. Usage of legal technology and legal tech trends
  2. How to vet litigation support providers
  3. The continued prevalence of remote work in the legal industry
  4. Heightened cybersecurity awareness

Below are excerpts from the survey results:

"Conducting industry research enables us to get to know our clients better, and in turn, further innovate and deliver products and services that exceed their expectations."
