What is an out of court settlement and when Is Civil Litigation Necessary?
The process of resolving a dispute between two parties through the court system is known as civil litigation. It can occur when one party wants to sue another over things like unpaid debts, the breach of a contract, negligence and a whole host of other circumstances.
Ideally, you want to make the process of a civil litigation the last resort if possible, as it can be drawn out and costly. Therefore, is civil litigation entirely necessary to resolve a dispute? Are there other options open to both parties to more amicably come to a satisfactory agreement or solution?
