When a dispute arises that cannot be resolved between two parties, they will frequently opt for litigation as a means of settling the dispute.
In the normal course of events in a commercial transaction, disagreements occur. Litigation is recommended so both sides can state their case, and the dispute can be resolved. It may be two companies in the litigation, or a company and its client.
Litigation issues are frequently settled without the costs of a long running court case. It can be the best means of minimizing future damage to the business relationship. A case can be litigated in front of a judge and jury, depending on the situation.
For instance, in a case in which the plaintiff sustained an injury, or a medical condition resulting from a product or behavior of a company. Litigating in the presence of a “sympathetic” jury would no doubt be the wise choice.
Deter Future Claims
Litigation can help a company set precedent. If the case is resolved in favor of a company, future similar claims would hopefully be minimized because of the findings in this case. In some cases, if a large company, and a smaller company litigate, the smaller of the companies may not have the financial wherewithal to pursue the case against them.
