Civil litigation is a broad area of law that encompasses all litigation that is not criminal.  Civil actions are generally between private individuals or corporations, but can also be commenced against the Crown (or government).  When you talk of people "suing" someone, this generally refers to civil litigation.  Some examples of civil actions that we may assist you with are claims for unpaid debts, claims for damages arising from motor vehicle accidents, builders' liens, and foreclosures.  Given the broad range of potential civil actions, this is an area of law where our lawyers will often collaborate within the firm. 

There are a variety of factors to be considered in determining whether it is appropriate to commence civil litigation proceedings and if so, what type of proceedings are most appropriate.
