Taking someone to court is known officially as ‘Civil Litigation’
Civil litigation is the process of resolving public or private legal disputes on civil matters by taking someone to court and negotiating.
You may want to take someone to court to seek compensation or costs from a business, institution or another private individual, such as a neighbour, for any of a variety of reasons. A civil case may be how you would pursue this.
Whether you are taking action against someone or have to defend yourself from litigation, you are likely to need a lawyer to assist you with this. A professional litigation solicitor on your side can make all the difference between winning and losing. Stonehewer Moss Solicitors are here to help.
