Litigation 2020 features 51 jurisdictions. The guide provides expert legal commentary on litigation funding, initiating a lawsuit, statutes of limitations, representative or collective actions, pre-trial proceedings, discovery, injunctive relief, settlement, damages, appeals, costs, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and arbitration.
