Commercial Litigation




Civil litigation encompasses a broad range of disputes. Civil litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties that usually seek money damages.

Commercial litigation

Civil litigation can be divided into seven stages: investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, trial, settlement and appeal. Not every lawsuit passes through each stage of litigation; most lawsuits are settled prior to trial and many cases that reach a trial verdict are not appealed.
