Businesses reeling after multiple international stay-at-home mandates are finding themselves out of options and filing for bankruptcy. The situation has led some law firms to cash in on bankruptcy service, and made many cautiously optimistic that the bankruptcy practice will be in high-demand during the current recession.

If it comes to fruition, a boom in bankruptcy proceedings could impact e-discovery counsel’s workload as well. “If you have an uptick in bankruptcies, especially corporate bankruptcies, you will have a correlated uptick in e-discovery expertise,” said Shannon Capone Kirk, Ropes & Gray’s e-discovery counsel. “I think that’s a fair projection to make.”
