Georgia’s legal environment is becoming increasingly more expensive and unpredictable. Georgia’s national legal ranking has fallen from 24th to 40th over a five-year period and continues to trend downward. It will be difficult for Georgia to remain the number one state in which to do business if its civil justice climate continues to erode.
