Civil litigation includes lawsuits between individuals, businesses (and sometimes governments), or some combination of individuals and business entities. The parties to litigation are the plaintiffs (who sue) and the defendants (who are being sued). Civil litigation covers many different types of lawsuits, from personal injury and accident claims to claims for business injuries (such as business fraud and unfair competition). In all types of litigation, specific rules of legal practice and substance govern how and when the lawsuit must proceed and what each litigant needs to prove in order to prevail.
Litigants are naturally anxious to have their disputes resolved as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, the amount of time it will take before a lawsuit is resolved is not always easy to predict. A case may be resolved quickly or may drag on for years. In many cases, a lawsuit can be resolved, or settled, before trial. A litigation specialist can help clients–whether plaintiffs or defendants– proceed in all aspects of litigation, through trials and even appeals, if necessary, as well as in negotiating settlement agreements.
