What is Civil Litigation?


It is to be expected that from time to time in everyday life, people will fall into conflict over property or agreements, whether at work, home or in public. Civil litigation is the legal process that courts follow when adjudicating civil lawsuits. Civil litigation is different to criminal litigation as there is no punishment in the form of jail time for the guilty party, however, if your rights have been violated, you may be entitled to compensation.

If you believe your rights have been violated in some capacity, you have the right to use the law to counter this offence. The legal proceedings that are then Initiated are called Civil Litigation.

What Civil Litigation situations can I claim for?

There are a number of Civil Litigation situations and circumstances that may entitle you to claim compensation. Our Comercial Litigation team have over 10 years of combined experience in resolving a broad range of disputes, including the following areas:

  • +
    Contractual Claims

    Contractual Claims cover breaches of contracts by one or more parties involved. It commonly happens when one party is unable to fulfil the commitments made in the contractual form or when one party fails to provide services it promised. This kind of dispute makes you eligible to start Civil Litigation against the party in breach to get due settlement and compensation for your losses and inconvenience.

  • +
    Claiming against

    Claiming against a Director can happen as a director is usually the most powerful person at the company. A director generally has the highest level of business responsibility at the company and must ensure they fulfil necessary obligations. Failure to do so can cause the initiation of Civil Litigation against the director which can result in disqualification and potentially the start of criminal proceedings.

  • +
    Division of Assets

    Division of Assets between two or more than two parties is a common reason for the Civil Litigation. Ask Legal will act as a mediator in the negotiations and can advise you on all legal proceedings in order to settle the Division of Assets.

  • +
    Professional Negligence

    Professional Negligence is one of the most common and misunderstood aspects of Civil Litigation. When you pay a person for professional help, they are bound to provide it to you to the best of their ability according to the terms of agreements between both parties. If they fail to do so, the hiring party can proceed with legal measures in pursuit of financial compensation and other settlements.
