Litigation is a word which seems to be mentioned a lot in law, with many not knowing what this area involves. Litigation is sometimes referred to as dispute resolution, which gives the term a little more clarity. The process is the involvement of a solicitor with disputes and claims which arise, particularly during a commercial transaction or deal. These can occur between company to company, or company to individual.
The issues which require litigating differ from case to case and could range from contractual issues relating to different types of commercial transactions such as commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, corporate management, and banking transactions.
It is fundamentally crucial when a dispute occurs in a business that an attempt to resolve the dispute is made as soon as possible. If a settlement cannot be reached this could ultimately have a detrimental impact on the business and its reputation, not to mention the cost which is involved with court battles. This is often why most parties agree that using a solicitor at an early stage in a dispute is the best avenue to take.
