The term “litigation” refers to a process that starts when someone decides to defend or enforce his or her legal rights and hires an attorney. This usually involves a case that is brought before a court of law in either the civil court or criminal court. Litigation involves a process of various steps that have to be taken which includes but are not limited to negotiations prior to a lawsuit being formally filed in court, an arbitration period, facilitation and appeals if they are needed. Litigation begins at the hiring of an attorney and formally ends when a decision has been reached in a case.
