Litigation is a specialized activity of state organs to deal with cases and resolve disputes in accordance with legal procedures and public power. In modern society, conflicts and disputes between different social subjects are mainly resolved through two channels, namely, “self-help” and public relief. Arbitration, mediation and other comparable methods of alternative dispute resolution are all “self-help” methods. If a “self-help” method cannot effectively solve disputes or conditions for having a “self-help” method cannot be met, public relief will be the last resort. Litigation is highly focused on following prescribed legal procedures, and judges are required to make judgments based on facts according to applicable laws and regulations. It is a wise move for parties to commercial disputes to engage lawyers professionally trained to participate in litigation.
