What are Litigation Lawyers in Johannesburg?


A litigation lawyers Johannesburg is an attorney who represents clients in lawsuits before courts. A litigation lawyers Johannesburg may represent either the plaintiff (party filing the lawsuit) or the defendant (party against whom the lawsuit was filed). Just as doctors have specialty practices, many litigators also specialize in certain areas. These areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, general civil litigation, construction, corporate, health care, administrative, personal injury, insurance, family, appellate, bankruptcy, transportation, probate and/or estate planning and real estate. Essentially, there is an area of law to cover just about any occupation or any instance imaginable.

There is far more to being a litigation lawyer than just appearing in court. Whether representing the plaintiff or defendant, many hours of investigating the circumstances and facts of the matter at hand take place. It is necessary for the attorney to learn every detail of the situation from the client in order to effectively file a suit or defend the client in a lawsuit. Once a lawsuit has been filed with the court, the defendant served with a citation and filed an answer, there is still a great deal of work to be done.

At this point the Court will set out the discovery period for the lawsuit. Discovery allows the parties to get as much information regarding the matter from each other as possible. This is done through serving documents on the other party. The documents usually consist of interrogatories, a series of questions about the matter, requests for information, which ask for information such as other parties who may have been involved, and requests for production, which request that any relevant documents which are not privileged (such as those considered attorney/client or trade secret privileged) be provided to the opposing counsel and party.
