Civil Litigation is a legal proceeding that involves disputes of a non-criminal nature. In other words, this can include legal matters such as couples seeking a divorce, tenants fighting with their landlords or workers involved in labour disputes.

It also embraces other specialised fields involving more complex litigation such as commercial and corporate disputes.

Civil litigation is usually divided into several stages. These include aspects such as investigation, pleadings, discovery, pre-trial proceedings, potential out-of-court settlements or trial.
Litigation lawyers devote the bulk of their time to the discovery stage. Discovery is the exchange of information obtained through depositions, interrogatories and subpoenas. However, litigation cases seldom ever pass through all of these stages. In fact, most civil matters are settled out-of-court by mutual agreement of all the parties concerned in the dispute.

Civil disputes encompass a wide range of subjects and include matters such as:

  • Divorce
  • Employment and labour
  • Environmental law
  • Landlord-tenant
  • Insurance law
  • Medical malpractice
  • Personal injury
  • Property
  • Workmen’s compensation
