Some law firms employ civil litigation attorneys as part of their staff. Other ligation lawyers choose to serve in boutique firms. There are some large legal firms that have litigation divisions to an extent of having sub-divisions focusing on business, patents, real estate and other forms of law. Large number of litigation lawyers are employed in the private sector, while those specializing in criminal law work for the government as prosecutors and district lawyers. However, U.S. attorneys’ offices and local municipalities employ civil ligation lawyers. There are some large corporations with potential to recruit their own litigation lawyers such as banks and other financial institutions.
The work of a civil litigator
Litigators start by investigating the case they are handling. This would involve gathering supportive evidence like documents, witness statements, medical records and others in order to have a strong case. After civil litigators have relevant details in order, they contact the other party’s representative and try to reach an agreement. The trail process is usually hectic and many individuals do not prefer to reach that stage. They prefer when a settlement is reached out of court or at pretrial stage.
