Contentious tax work is also on the rise. On the real estate and construction front, commercial projects are keeping law firms busy.

Cartel and white-collar crime cases continue to drive disputes and EU and competition related work for firms, while data protection remains a core focus for TMT practices. Firm have also noted an increase in trade mark litigation cases.
