Litigation vs Arbitration

Litigation is a process in which a law suit is conducted before the judge and jury. Law suit is civil action brought into court by some plaintiff against defendant due to alleged losses imposed by defendant’s actions

Litigation is a process in which a lawsuit is conducted before the judge and jury. A lawsuit is a civil action brought into court by some plaintiff against defendant due to alleged losses imposed by defendant’s actions. If the defendant is unable to prove in front of the court that he/she has not caused any damage to the plaintiff then the court decides in favor of the plaintiff or vice versa. Both plaintiff and defendant are called litigants.

Arbitration on the other hand involves two parties in dispute agreeing on the third disinterested party to act as arbitrator and resolve their dispute; arbitration process is private between two parties while litigation is not. The arbitration process is mostly short and quick while not the case with litigation. Similarly, arbitration is cheaper as compared to litigation process as it involves high court costs. Another difference when it comes to litigation vs arbitration is that judge is nominated in former scenario while decided among parties in the case of arbitration.
