Litigation provides a process for an individual or organization to sue another for reported wrongdoings and resolve the dispute when the parties can’t reach an agreement on their own.

The litigation process and decisions made during it follow the rules of the law to ensure a fair outcome.

The litigation process involves several steps, including pre-litigation work to investigate the facts of the dispute, preparing a legal argument, negotiating a settlement, and appeals if needed.


While litigation can involve going to trial, most cases are resolved out of court.

If you are considering filing a lawsuit, consider consulting with a lawyer or litigator familiar with your situation. They can help guide you on your options and whether litigation or other dispute resolution approaches like mediation or arbitration would be best.
