Litigation is a legal proceeding initiated between two parties to either defend or enforce a legal right. Litigation can be settled when the two opposing parties come to an agreement.
A litigator represents the complainant in a civil case and is in charge of handling the litigation process. The required credentials for being a litigator include having an undergraduate degree, passing a law school admission test and one has to acquire a Juris Doctor Degree from a school of law which is accredited by the American Bar Association.
The litigant is represented by an attorney and initiates the litigation process. Prior to that a thorough investigation of the facts, issues, and the outcomes of the case is conducted. Later, the litigant and his attorney file a complaint with the appropriate court and serve the defendants who in turn file an answer. The discovery stage is the initial stage which is basically the exchange of investigation and evidence. If the parties agree to find a compromise a settlement conference follows. However, if the parties fail to find a compromise, the trial starts so as to arrive at a final verdict and learn more about Karl.
