Commercial and Civil Litigation
What is Civil Litigation?
The best way to grasp civil litigation is to contrast a defendant in criminal proceedings being tried/prosecuted for a crime with a defendant in civil proceedings being sued for monetary damages or some other civil remedy..
When two or more individuals or entities become involved in a legal battle seeking damages or some other relief, civil litigation is what in ensues. A legal practitioner who practices in civil litigation is known as a litigation lawyer or trial lawyer.
Often, mediation and/or arbitration are dispute resolution processes that endeavour to guide the parties towards a compromised resolution of proceedings so as to avoid the stress, time and expense associated with a final hearing.
