Litigation is quite simply the process of taking legal action. It is used to describe proceedings that have been initiated by two opposing parties mainly defending or enforcing a legal right. The dictionary definition of a litigator is someone who specializes in taking legal action. This could be against individuals or organizations. A litigator manages a case from start to finish, drafting legal documents, researching legal issues and arguing before courts.
