Litigations is the process by ways of an action or application proceeding instituted and brought before either a Magistrate- Regional- or High Court by virtue of a legal dispute, seeking relief by the court to enforce a right the applicant or plaintiff is entitled to.

When to Consult a Litigation Lawyer?

Whenever you are in a dispute that you believe cannot amicably be settled between the parties, alternatively successfully mediated, it is advisable to seek a Litigation specialist advice to assist in either instituting an application or action on your behalf before the matter escalates any further. Furthermore, should you receive a letter of demand from another law firm, or court papers are served on you by the Sheriff, you must immediately contact a litigation law firm to assist you, as the court rules prescribed steps and actions that must be taken in different time frames.
