potential trends in court decisions, taxes and legislation
best way I can think of to distinguish between <juridiques> and <légales> and <fiscal> is almost always taxes rather than <fiscal>

any possible judicial, fiscal and legal developments
"of any possible judicial, tax and legal developments".
It is perfectly OK to use the adjective "fiscal" for anything pertaining to tax. I honestly think that as a point of style the whole things hangs together much better with "judicial, fiscal and legal".
judicial : refers to anything emanating from the courts and its judges (covers judge-made law, jurisprudence, court decisions, rulings whatever you want to call it)
fiscal : standard English adjective meaning "tax-related"
legal : as in anything realting to the law.
You do not need to strive to find ways of differentiating "juridique" and "légal". They ARE different. I have already explaiend the first one, and as for the second, then it is obviously much wider ranging, extending to statute, which is definitely excluded in the first term. With all due respect to the answer chosen, these differences are important and should be reflected in your version.
