Litigation is the process in which two opposing parties initiate proceedings to implement or defend a legal right. A litigation is normally settled by an agreement between the two parties, but can also be settled by a panel of judges or one judge in court. It normally includes any activities before, during, and after a lawsuit to enforce a legal right and may also include actual lawsuit, any suit before the negotiations, facilitation, arbitration or appeals. A litigator comes up with the strategy and advises his client on how to defend their case in court.
Derived from a Latin word which means ‘to drive a lawsuit’ a litigator is one who manages a lawsuit through the judicial process. Functional to a lawyer, litigator is a licensed attorney who represents the plaintiffs and defendants in civil cases and manages the litigation process. Interchangeably used to mean a trial lawyer, they take charge of investigations, listening to pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement and any appeals that may come up. Litigators study Law and pass through accredited school of Law.
