Litigation is a legal process to resolve disputes between two opposing parties in the legal system.

While litigation can result in the case going to court, most cases are resolved before making it into the courtroom.

Are legal and litigation the same thing?

Litigation involves legal action between two individuals, groups, or businesses to settle a dispute.

In the law, legal refers to something conforming to or permitted by the law or established rules.

Additionally, lawsuits and litigation are not the same. A lawsuit is an actual dispute between two opposing parties. But litigation is the process of handling a lawsuit, including actions taken before, during, and after the case.
