What Exactly Does A Litigator Do?

Both Sides Of Litigation

If there’s a dispute, a litigator, or litigation solicitor or lawyer, represents the defendant or the one who initiated the dispute. Once you choose a litigation solicitor, you will be helped to make an informed decision, to either settle the dispute off court or in court. Whether you were the one charged with breaching a contract or the one charging someone else for the offense, you need a litigator.

Litigation Process

Litigators deal with and are fully involved in all aspects of the litigation process. They collect all information, documentation and evidence to support the case. They will be involved in the investigation, discovery pre-trial, negotiations, trial, settlement and any possible appeal.


If documentation is in electronic format, litigators sometimes engage an independent team of electronic discovery service providers, known also as e-discovery service providers. This is a more cost-effective way of identifying and collating documentation that will assist them in the legal proceedings.

Specialised In Their Field

A litigator is someone who specialises in taking legal action against a person or organization. But litigators are experts in specific fields. For instance, a personal injury litigator has a specific expertise which differs from a family law litigator, or a corporate/business law litigator. This is stating the obvious but you really want to choose a litigator who has years of experience in the specific field where you need assistance or advice.

Here are some areas a litigator will specialise in:

  • Any breaches of contract
  • Employment contracts
  • Residential/commercial contracts and tenancies
  • Commercial leases
  • Intellectual property
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Supply agreements
  • Partnership agreements
  • Consultancy agreements
