What is civil litigation?

Civil litigation is the blanket term used for legal disputes that do not involve a criminal element.

Types of civil cases

What is the civil litigation process?

You may have a variety of dispute resolution options available to you, depending on the nature of the dispute and the specifics of your situation. Civil disputes can be resolved by a number of means including:

  • Filing proceedings in the Disputes Tribunal;
  • Mediation and arbitration;
  • Going to court.

Our civil litigation lawyers may be able to negotiate informally or make submissions on your behalf to secure a resolution.

Alternatively, we may try to resolve the dispute by reaching an agreement with the opposing party through a conciliation or settlement conference, or with the assistance of a mediator.

More often than not, cases can be resolved before having to go through the court process. If this is unavoidable in your situation, our civil litigation lawyers have a proven track record and will be with you through each step of the process.
