Abstract

In recent years, the number of lawsuits filed by Chinese listed companies has been on the rise. So does the scale of the amount involved. When a public company is involved in litigation, the potential uncertainty increases dramatically, threatening investment projects including innovation. This paper discusses the evolution of litigation risk, the factors affecting litigation risk and the impact of litigation risk on enterprise innovation. Results show that once the company is involved in lawsuit, it will face huge labor costs, litigation costs, as well as the compensation resulting from loss of the lawsuit, which seriously undermines its financial situation. Once cash flows tighten, management will cut non-rigid investment projects, such as research and development activities, to bring risks under control.
