The term general litigation refers to litigation and other aspects of law such as wills/estate planning, incorporating businesses, contract drafting, real-estate transactions, disputes with administrative bodies, and more. Typically, litigation will transpire when things go wrong, and the controversy ends up in court.

What is the Litigation Process?

1) Plaintiff sues
2) Defendant answers and/or brings a countersuit
3) Parties commence discovery
4) Sometimes mediation or alternative dispute resolution
5) Trial
6) Appeal

Lawsuits are initiated by filing a Complaint. There are many other procedural requirements you need to follow to obtain jurisdiction over the other party. Depending on where you sue and the amount in controversy you may or may not be able to get evidence including interviews and documents of other people including the other party.
