Definition of Litigation

Litigation is a legal procedure that entails bringing a claim against another person or organization, followed by a court trial to settle any differences or conflicts.

Typically, litigation starts when one party feels they have been wronged or have experienced losses as a result of the other party's activities.

A judge or jury will decide the outcome based on the evidence given in court, which may include both civil and criminal matters.
