Strategic litigation is a tool used to advance the legitimate business interests of a company in a way that typically extends beyond a particular case. Put another way, a case may be used as part of an overall platform to effect broader changes that benefit the company in its overall operations and business goals.
Typically, strategic litigation is combined with other areas, such as advocacy and lobbying and public relations. In this overall process, litigation is only one component. Advocacy in different forums and media engagement are a critical component of strategic litigation.
