Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between civil and criminal litigation?
The key difference between civil and criminal litigation is that civil litigation involves disputes between private parties. Comparatively, criminal litigation involves the prosecution of an individual or organisation from a crime they are alleged to have committed.
How long does the litigation process typically take?
The legal process involved in dispute litigation may vary on the complexity of the case and where the case is being heard. Disputes that are not as extensive can be resolved in a matter of months, whereas cases that involve crime, multiple individuals, and organisations can take years before resolution is reached.
How much does litigation support cost?
Similar to determining how long litigation will take for a case, costs are highly dependent on how complicated the case and dispute is to resolve. Typically, legal services will also vary depending on the solicitors involved and the amount of support required throughout the case.
What is the role of a lawyer in litigation?
The role of our lawyers in dispute litigation is to represent our clients in court and to advise them on the legal aspects within their case. It is important to ensure each client is aware of the legal considerations and the processes involved. Litigation lawyers will also handle the paperwork and negotiations required in the litigation process.
Can I represent myself in court?
Despite it being possible to represent yourself in litigation, this is not advised. Navigating the legal system can be confusing and intimidating, particularly if you are not well versed with the case and legal processes involved in reaching resolution.
How can I avoid litigation?
To maximise your efforts to avoid litigation you can implement these measures:
- Drafting clear and detailed contracts
- Mediating disputes before they escalate
- Regularly reviewing and updating policies
- Conducting procedures to ensure compliance with laws and regulations
- Working with a dedicated firm to ensure all legal practices are put in place to prevent litigation disputes
