Litigation has often been described as “war” and the conduct of litigation is readily cast in the terms of war and chaos. This "fog of war" is often used as an excuse that keeps business executives at arms length from the details of their lawyers' strategy. It also obscures a basic fact about litigation: Litigation is a process with an established order of actions and events. In fact, judges take a dim view of “chaos” and “surprise attacks,” preferring an orderly and predictable process for their matters. This is why we can explain the basics of litigation to you in just 10 minutes. With this knowledge, you can with confidence ask your own legal advocates the questions you need to set up yourself, and your organization, to achieve the litigation result you require.
