What is litigation?
Legalbit Litigation Division define litigation to be a term used to describe legal proceedings commenced in Court by one party against another. Litigation can take on many forms and starts with the plaintiff commencing the proceedings identifying the cause of action which entitles the plaintiff to a legal remedy, by reason of the facts and circumstances alleged.
In NSW litigation is commenced in various Courts depending on the nature and value of the claim in question. In some instances, the quantum of the dispute will determine the venue, for instance, claims under $100,000 are generally conducted in the Local Court of NSW. In other disputes the legislation will dictate the venue regardless of the quantum involved, for instance, cases involving real property, wills and estates, and the law of equity are, for the most part, conducted only in the Supreme Court of NSW.
