A dispute, whether between two people or two businesses, can present a serious challenge to relationships. Regardless of the parties to the conflict, family members, neighbors, business partners, or competitors, the process of pursuing and achieving resolution can be complicated, stressful, lengthy and costly.
The area of the law referred to as civil litigation encompasses the variety of lawsuits that occur in the civil courts. Litigation simply refers to disputes that have grown large enough to force one of the parties to take action. Other tactics such as negotiation or conflict resolution have proven inadequate to settle the dispute, thus necessitating the commencement of a civil lawsuit. These include lawsuits between private individuals, organizations, associations, businesses, or government actors for civil wrongs, disputes, or other conflicts that give rise to a legal cause of action.
As opposed to a criminal court case seeking criminal sanctions, a civil lawsuit seeks money damages, economic restitution or compensation, compensation for an injured party, specific performance, and even deterrence from future actions. Commercial litigation is a subset of civil litigation that is comprised of lawsuits addressing disputes and conflicts between businesses or companies.
