Do you need a civil litigation lawyer in Mississauga, Ontario?
Civil litigation generally refers to the court process of fighting contractual disputes and other civil legal issues. The intent of the civil justice system is to hold individuals and businesses accountable for their actions (or lack thereof). Those who are not diligent in their activities or conduct non-compliant operations are at risk of a civil lawsuit. They may be sued for carelessness or failing to uphold their end of a written or oral agreement. Without the legal advice of an experienced civil rights lawyer, they may face serious financial and reputational consequences.
Gujral Law Office provides legal services in the following areas:
- Civil litigation, from inception to trials at various levels

You may file a Statement of Claim to start a civil litigation suit against a party who has caused financial loss or physical damage, regardless of whether the loss was intended or not. However, if damage was deliberately inflicted you may be entitled to punitive or exemplary damages, with recovery exceeding your actual loss.
Filing a lawsuit is serious. Although a civil action can be filed without legal assistance, the system is complicated and technical. In Ontario, the loser generally must pay his own legal fees plus all or part of the winner’s costs. Mr. Gujral can help you determine if a reasonable offer to settle at the earliest possible stage makes sense.
