Among the many careers in law, one of the most common is litigation. Litigation is a process that involves an attorney representing a plaintiff or defendant in a civil case. Not all attorneys can be litigators, and all litigators are attorneys. A litigator is an attorney who is able to present the defendant of a plaintiff and see him/her through the entire civil case. For a litigation to be complete, there are various stages that one must undergo through. They include discovery, pleadings, trial, investigation, appeal, settlement and pre-trail.
The workload that a litigator will do majorly depend on where they practice law is it a small law firm or a large law firm. What one undergoes in a small law firm is entirely different from what he/she undergoes in a large law firm. In large enterprises, a new litigator will do various things in the company before he/she can get a chance to represent a defendant and plaintiff in a court of law. Most of the time these litigators will be writing memos and doing research while at small firms, litigators get a chance to mix doing research and going to court to represent a client.
