Litigation is also known as dispute resolution. It involves any assistance given to people who have disputes in business transactions. Companies or individuals may have differences in terms of mergers and acquisitions, banking transactions, competition, restructuring problems or contractual matters. In such a case, a litigator will come in to represent a plaintiff or defendant in civil cases. The litigator will help the client in the process of investigations, pleadings and discovery. The legal expert is also instrumental in pre-trial, trial, settlement and appeal. The education level of a litigator includes a Bachelor degree, a Test to the Law School Admission, a Juris Doctor (J.D), passing the Bar Exam and being experienced.
The litigation process goes through different phases which include preliminary case assessment and development where the two parties can meet and the litigators can develop a theory for the case. The second one is pleadings where the defendant is served with summons and complaints. The third stage is discovery which means exchanging evidence. In the fourth stage there is summary judgement and finally a trial can be the next step if it is necessary.
