Litigation is the process of taking legal action against one or more parties in a court of law.
Generally, parties find themselves in litigation as a result of failed negotiations or mediation after a dispute has arisen. The process begins when a party (the Plaintiff) files an action against another party (the Defendant) to enforce some legal right in court.
At Shope Krohn, we take a preventative approach to litigation; meaning that when we represent our clients in transactions, we strive to ensure that all parties are clear as to all aspects of the transaction. This carefulness helps to avoid litigation, as ambiguities are one of the main reasons for disputes.
Sometimes litigation is unavoidable. When it does arise, Shope Krohn is well-equipped to handle the matter from start to finish.
