It means the process of taking an argument between people or groups to a court of law. The case could be criminal, in which the state argues that a citizen violated the law, or civil, in which two citizens or businesses argue against each other. Within each of these categories there are several other smaller courts.
The parties will attempt to resolve their issues many times over these initial stages, but if these attempts are unsuccessful, the case will go to trial. A judge will preside over the trial to ensure that the law is interpreted accurately and that each side follows procedure. Sometimes the judge will also decide the facts of the case, but sometimes that task is left to a jury. If either party believes that the judge made an error in her interpretation of the law or procedure, that party can appeal the case to an appellate court, which will then review the judge's decisions for accuracy. When the appellate court judges find an error, they will often send the case back to the trial court for correction.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION LAW
Dispute resolution is a term that refers to a number of processes that can be used to resolve a conflict, dispute or claim. It may also be referred to as alternative dispute resolution, appropriate dispute resolution. Dispute resolution techniques assist the resolution of antagonisms between parties that can include citizens, corporations, and governments. Dispute resolution processes are alternatives to having a court decide the dispute in a trial or other institutions decide the resolution of the case or contract.

Insolvency is the legal term describing the situation of a debtor who is unable to pay his, her, or its debts. There are two primary types of insolvency: cash flow and balance sheet. In cash flow insolvency, the debtor suffers from a lack of financial liquidity making it impossible to pay debts as they fall due. Cash-flow insolvency is when a person or company has enough assets to pay what is owed, but does not have the appropriate form of payment. For example, a person may own a large house and a valuable car, but not have enough liquid assets to pay a debt when it falls due. Cash-flow insolvency can usually be resolved by negotiation. For example, the bill collector may wait until the car is sold and the debtor agrees to pay a penalty. Balance-sheet insolvency is when a person or company does not have enough assets to pay all of their debts. The person or company might enter bankruptcy, but not necessarily. Once a loss is accepted by all parties, negotiation is often able to resolve the situation without bankruptcy.
A company that is balance-sheet insolvent may still have enough cash to pay its next bill on time. However, most laws will not let the company pay that bill unless it will directly help all their creditors. For example, an insolvent farmer may be allowed to hire people to help harvest the crop, because not harvesting and selling the crop would be even worse for his creditors.

Tourists and short-term visitors are not considered immigrants. However, seasonal labor migration (typically for periods of less than a year) is often treated as a form of immigration. The global volume of immigration is high in absolute terms, but low in relative terms. We handle cases of USA, UK immigration Laws.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW
Intellectual property is a category of property that includes intangible creations of the human intellect. There are many types of intellectual property, and some countries recognize more than others. The most well-known types are copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets. Intellectual Property Laws protect this unique type of property by sheltering the rights of those who create the property. There are many federal laws and state tort claims that work to provide certain protections for products that were created out of a person's own mental process, and establish ownership for marketable ideas. These laws and protections are designed to help the creator feel secure in his or her rights to the property, and provide exclusive benefit to the creator, while hopefully encouraging new inventions and technologies.
Federal law defines fraud as any intentional deception or misrepresentation used to benefit yourself or someone else. These laws identify specific types of fraud crimes, each of which has specific penalties associated with them. The offenses included in the category of fraud, by contrast, involve a “scheme or artifice” to convince someone to give something of value based on false statements or false pretenses. Federal fraud statutes, along with most state laws, require proof of a “scheme or artifice” to defraud.
Corporate law (also known enterprise law or sometimes company law) is the body of law governing the rights, relations, and conduct of persons, companies, organizations and businesses. The term refers to the legal practice of law relating to corporations, or to the theory of corporations.

It thus encompasses the formation, funding, governance, and death of a corporation.
Corporate law regulates how corporations, investors, shareholders, directors, employees, creditors, and other stakeholders such as consumers, the community, and the environment interact with one another.
