Legal processes are complicated and can be difficult to understand by a layman, but it is important to know the basics. If you need to defend yourself through the legal system, it is best to arm yourself with all of the knowledge you can. For example, there is some murkiness about what exactly the term ‘litigation’ means. Most seem to believe that litigation and lawsuit can be used interchangeably, but its definition is more nuanced than that.
When an individual has been wronged and decides to invoke their legal right to defense, the process of litigation has begun. All actions that individual takes to defend themselves through the legal system are part of litigation This includes any official action taken before, during, and after a suit. It also does not necessarily require that a suit be filed at all. Arbitration or settlements which do not involve the court at all still count as litigation. The term denotes any action that an individual takes to defend their rights through the legal system, whether those actions lead to a court or not.
