Litigation Solicitors Dublin
A substantial part of our practice involves litigation. Litigation is the procedure whereby a series of steps are taken which ultimately will result in a contested court hearing before a judge.
The first step in most litigation matters is that a demand is made and if the demand is refused or ignored then legal proceedings can issue which will set out in detail the nature of the claim.

The various documents that issue in the course of litigation are collectively known as pleadings. The aim of these pleadings is to enable both parties and a judge hearing the case to know exactly what the claim is, exactly what the issues are between the parties and exactly what any defence or counterclaim is.
If it is not possible to settle the differences between the parties then the issues can be determined in a court before a judge and in certain limited cases, before a judge and a jury.
