Civil litigation describes a dispute between two parties that is not based on criminal sanctions. Typically, civil litigation cases have one party (the plaintiff) that is seeking money or some other kind of remedy (damages) from another party, whom we call the defendant. Since civil litigation describes non-criminal legal cases, the nature of these cases is extremely broad and differs from client to client. Examples of such cases include, but is not limited to cases of insolvency, personal injury, insurance law, family law, defamation, land ownership disputes, election petitions, judicial review and constitutional law.
