It’s important to first understand that litigation differs from a lawsuit. The latter represents a civil, legal dispute between a plantiff and defendant. Litigation, however, is the process the lawsuit goes through once filed. So litigation is actually a method for settling a lawsuit or legal dispute.
Make no mistake…litigation can be a time-consuming process. Many trials don’t happen before one year of the suit’s filing. Once begun, some trials take years to conclude. The longer the litigation, the more costly the trial. Costs aside, trials can be stressful, damages are unpredictable, appeals can extend the outcome even longer, and trials are public, unless sealed by a judge. That’s why the majority of cases by some calculations up to 95%, both sides agree to a settlement.
