What is Civil Litigation?
Civil Litigation is a dynamic and complex process, which can last days or years and cover many different areas and specialties. A civil litigation lawyer, also known as a litigator, will manage all phases of the litigation process from the initial meeting to completion, including appeals.
It usually involves one party (a Plaintiff) who makes a claim or sues others for money. Some claims can be pursued to enforce rights, stop activities from occurring or forcing certain events to happen.
The litigation process involves gathering and organising documentation, investigating issues, reviewing evidence, obtaining expert opinions, conducting oral discoveries and negotiating issues. The legal dispute will be resolved through settlement negotiations and, occasionally, after trials.
