What is litigation?
Litigation is a fancy legal word for a lawsuit. There are two main aspects of a lawsuit and that’s going to be your civil litigation or your criminal litigation. In criminal, you have someone that’s committed a crime, broken a law, and primarily then those consequences are going to be taking away liberties or freedom. That does not exist in a civil litigation context. Civil litigation, on the other hand, involves lawsuits generally speaking for money between individuals or businesses, and that usually then derives from some type of breach of contract or agreement between those parties.
