Strategic litigation is a tool used to advance the legitimate interests of an organization or group of people–typically employee or shareholder groups. Strategic litigation is often used by public policy organizations, labor organizations–as well as businesses–to help effect broader changes that benefit the company in its broader operations and business goals.
Often, 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.
