The US Economy seems set to maintain a higher gear in 2018.  Recently passed tax cuts will only add fuel to already strong domestic consumption and investment activity. As a leading provider of legal coverage plans, LegalShield has developed unique metrics that can rapidly reveal when consumer or housing market behavior has shifted based on incoming caseload data.

Join experts from The Conference Board and LegalShield to learn:

  • What new data reveals about how individual and firms are responding to the new tax law;
  • How the volume of legal filings in key areas of law illustrate patterns in consumer spending and real estate activity; and
  • The role regional variations in case filings in key areas of law can play in revealing geographic differences in current economic conditions

Receive an update on The Conference Board’s economic outlook to determine what strategic changes may be needed for short-term business plans.

Who Should Attend: Business leaders interested in learning how recent US tax reform could impact consumer behavior and how their organizations should respond.
