Experienced and Professional Civil Litigation Lawyers in London, Ontario

In some cases, the only way to resolve a dispute is to take the case to court. At Fosters Law LLP, our civil litigation lawyers have extensive trial experience so that we can help resolve your case with the best possible outcome.

However, going to trial isn’t always the best way forward. It can be risky and it may not be in the client’s best interest. Our civil litigation lawyers have a long track record of achieving early resolution of claims. This is more time and cost-effective as well as less stressful for you as the client.

What is Civil Litigation?

Litigation involves taking legal matters to court. However, sometimes these issues are resolved outside a courtroom. Civil litigation, specifically, occurs when these legal matters are civil, not criminal, in nature.

Examples of disputes that could give rise to civil litigation include estate litigation, a breach of fiduciary duty, an unjust enrichment claim, vicarious liability, a wrongful dismissal, property damage, and product liability.

Frequently Asked Questions About Civil Litigation Lawyers

Is Civil Litigation Expensive?

The cost of litigation varies depending on the case. Generally, it can be a very costly, unsatisfying, and time-consuming process.

Attorney fees aside, you will also have to pay for things like copying and filing documents or the fees of court reporters or expert witnesses. And these are only the measurable costs. Litigation can also include some hidden costs, such as tarnishing reputations and relationships, as well as keeping certain employees from productive activities.

How Can You Decrease Civil Litigation Costs?

There are ways that you can decrease your costs of litigation. First, you should make sure that you have a legal team that understands the importance of avoiding court. Often, matters are taken to court that could easily be resolved outside of court. This saves everyone’s time and money.

At Fosters LLP, our first step is to consider the suitability of alternative dispute resolution. This involves using methods other than the court process to resolve your dispute. Some such methods are mediation, arbitration, and settlement negotiation.

Second, if going to court is unavoidable, you need to make sure that you have an experienced legal team that doesn’t break the bank. At Fosters LLP, we do our best to provide you with the best quality legal help while keeping your costs to a minimum.

What Does A Civil Litigator Do? 

A civil litigator, or civil litigation lawyer, represents either the plaintiff or the defendant at trial when they are involved in a civil dispute.

Most civil litigators will specialize in a particular area of law, such as insurance law, estate litigation, family law, or medical malpractice. This is because civil law is incredibly broad, and covers many different areas of law. Therefore, civil litigators usually specialize in one or two areas to give you the best possible legal service.

Duties of Civil Litigation Lawyers

Although a civil litigator will represent you in court, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes before you go to court. Your civil litigator will oversee this process. Their duties extend beyond court appearances to include:

  • interviewing clients and witnesses
  • drafting formal documents (such as a Statement of claim or statement of defence)
  • drafting motions
  • conducting examinations for discovery
  • negotiating settlement

What Are The Steps In Civil Litigation? 

Because civil litigation can take the form of going to court or using one of the alternative dispute resolution processes, each case will involve different steps. Within each process, there are rules of civil procedure that your attorney must follow.

For your purposes, however, the first step in civil litigation is meeting with your attorney. You will inform your lawyer of what is happening and why you need their help.

Then, your lawyer will explain what they believe your legal position to be and will provide you with options you could take going forward. You will likely meet with your lawyer a few times before you choose how you are going to proceed with the matter. Although your lawyer will give you legal advice, all major decisions will ultimately be taken by you.
