When it is necessary for a matter to proceed to litigation for determination, strategy and planning are two of the most important factors which can impact on the ultimate result.
Before the first court document is filed, it is imperative that thought has been given to your litigation strategy, by considering the following:
- What is the end result being sought?
- How will I persuade the decision maker (the Judge) that the result I want is what should occur, according to the law to be applied?
- What are the real issues in contention?
- What evidence will support the result I seek on contentious issues?
