Stages of Litigation
Since much of the publicity on legal matters focuses on the verdict or end result of a lawsuit, most people have a limited understanding of the many stages involved in the litigation process. Litigation is a broad and encompassing term that describes the process of garnering information and resolving legal disputes in court. Through litigation, individuals and businesses resolve a variety of disputes ranging from insurance payouts for personal injuries to trademark questions to contractual disputes.
