The term litigation represents activities before, during and after a lawsuit to enforce a legal right. Accordingly, litigation may include activities such as the actual lawsuit, discovery process, pre-suit negotiations, arbitrations, facilitations and appeals. Most importantly, the litigation process is time consuming, expensive and frequently leaves a negative impact on businesses. Therefore, to solve the business related conflicts, the litigation process should be avoided or minimized by using alternative methods such as mediation and arbitration.
