What is Litigation?
Litigation is comprised of a lawsuit or a legal contest in a court of justice for the purpose of enforcing a right.
The parties in such a law suit include:
• a plaintiff who claims to have received damages from and seeks a legal or equitable remedy from
• a defendant who is required to respond to the plaintiff’s complaints.
If the plaintiff is successful, a judgment is awarded in his favour.
That judgment may include court orders, such as:
• awarding damages
• enforcing rights
• imposing injunctions
If the defendant is successful, he/she will be exonerated and perhaps awarded the costs of the action against the plaintiff.
Litigation may involve resolving courtroom disputes between individuals OR business entities.
