Parties now have more options in litigation. Litigation no longer entails only trying civil lawsuits; rather, it is part of a larger system of dispute resolution, which, along with traditional civil lawsuits, includes arbitration, mediation, trials using private judges, collaborative law, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
Some disputes still require immediate, aggressive action in a court. However, in many situations, clients and their lawyers are looking for more cost effective and efficient ways to resolve disputes.
