Litigation refers to the legal act of solving a dispute between two persons that may be defending or enforcing a legal right. Litigation can include disputes between corporations and individuals in handling business matters, competition, contract issues, mergers and acquisitions and restructuring complications.
A litigator is an attorney who represents the complainant in the civil case and undertakes all that is required in the litigation process. This includes assisting the plaintiff with investigations, pleadings, and discovery. Additionally, the litigator is also needed to handle all details about the pre-trial, trial, settlement, as well as the appeal. In most instances, it is better to solve a dispute out of court and may require holding a ‘without prejudice’ meeting with the defendant and their litigator. The benefit of this is that one may discover that the individual they want to sue is broke and cannot pay the damages.
A litigator must have an undergraduate degree, pass the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), and acquire a Juris Doctor Degree from an Accredited Law School. Finally, before they are handed a license, they must pass a bar exam. When one obtains their valid license, they can start practicing litigation to gain the relevant experience.
