Litigation is not limited to the courtroom. It often begins there, but does not always end there. Litigation frequently occurs in the context of other disputes or controversies that do not necessarily involve a judge or jury. These are called “disputes.”
Many disputes are resolved without litigation, and these can be resolved by mediation or negotiation, which is simply a form of negotiation between two parties instead of three or more.
Trial also frequently occurs in the context of other trials. Multiple trials may occur as a case goes through successive stages of trial procedure, such as appeal hearings and rehearings. A criminal case may also include pre-trial proceedings, such as investigation, arrest, indictment, bail determination and plea bargain negotiations.
If you are involved in a civil dispute with someone else about money or property and you need legal assistance to protect your rights, it will be helpful for you to learn about the different ways in which our firm can help you resolve that dispute. Our firm handles all types of litigation and provides counsel in all phases of civil litigation.
It’s common to see litigiousness as a negative character trait. The litigious person, we say, is touchy and can’t stand to lose, whereas the reasonable person knows to walk away sometimes. But litigation and dispute resolution are some of the most important things we do.
If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ll probably get sued at some point. If you’re involved in a business partnership, there will be disputes.
