The appropriate litigation strategy is to pursue arbitration, mediation or other alternative dispute mechanisms first while at the same time letting the other side know we are prepared to proceed to trial by fully litigating the issue.
In Litigation the details of procedure differ greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, and often from court to court within the same jurisdiction. The rules are very important for litigants to know, however, because they dictate the timing and progression of the lawsuit, what may be filed and when, to obtain what result. Failure to comply with the procedural rules may result in serious limitations upon the ability to present claims or defenses at any subsequent trial, or even dismissal of the lawsuit.
