There is something I've never quite understood.

On the one hand, in one of my guides to Corporate Law Firms in France, I see that, according to their own reckoning, law firms in France make roughly 30-50% of their turnover from Litigation.

On the other, my French agency clients, who send me lots of legal docs to translate, offer me relatively little litigation work.

I'd be grateful for any knowledgeable opinions.

- could it be that agencies don't target this type of work?
- perhaps law firms are not confident that agencies can do this type of work well?
- something else?

Thanks!
