Civil Litigation involves non-criminal matters. It is the term used for describing legal disputes that have occurred involving two or more parties aiming to solve disputes between individuals or organisations.
Our offices are highly accessible throughout London and the UK so that you may have direct access to your solicitor.
Civil Litigation covers broad aspects of the law ranging from personal injury to defamation. We can help conduct settlement negotiations on your behalf and draft pleadings and complaints. Our civil litigation lawyers will also attempt to settle the dispute, particularly if the case is not very strong so as to ensure the satisfaction of all our clients. We will ensure that you are successful in settling your dispute and will put you as our top priority.
Civil vs Criminal Solicitors
Generally, civil cases are settled with money damages or compensation which is different from criminal cases where there is a risk of going to prison. Other important differences can include:
- Civil law cases are filed by individuals or organisations whereas criminal law cases are filed by the government.
- Both parties in civil law cases can appeal whereas only the defendant can appeal criminal law cases
- In criminal law cases, punishments are handed out. No one has ever gone to prison as a result of a civil case.
Areas that our Civil Litigation solicitors in London advise on include:
Defamation could arise if someone makes a false statement about someone that damages their reputation and causes distress and financial loss. In order for a claim of defamation to be valid, it must be proven that the statement has caused serious harm to your reputation or it is very likely to happen as a result; and it is the claimant’s responsibility to prove this.
Education disputes can cause a lot of stress for all parties involved, and there may be dire consequences if matters are not handled quickly and appropriately. Our expert litigation solicitors have extensive knowledge and understanding of the education sector and will take suitable action to ensure that your child receives the standard of education they deserve.
