Toronto — With the technology industry expected to continue its soaring growth throughout the next decade, nearly half of lawyers in a recent survey said they believe intellectual property will be the hottest practice area in the next 10 years.

That’s triple the second most common opinion, held by 16 per cent of lawyers who answered corporate transactional law. Five per cent said employment law.
