The ins and outs of resolving civil legal proceedings swiftly and satisfactorily
Led by an experienced civil lawyer, Gujral Law Professional Corporation in Mississauga, Ontario, supports individuals and organizations throughout the Greater Toronto Area in avoiding the contractual- and compliance-related oversights and disputes that ultimately lead to litigation. Of course, there is a wide range of activities that present risks of legal action or conflicts that are settled in the courtroom. A bit of partnering on the front end assures that no stones are left unturned related to exposures to litigation vulnerabilities and that contracts and other legally-binding documents are airtight. Even something as seemingly simple, affordable, and straightforward as assessing safeguards within one’s office or facility, such as the availability of rugs and mats near entryways, can curb potential personal injury-related claims.
With all that being said, our lawyer, Tarunjeet Gujral, has also had the great privilege of helping individuals and organizations alike reach a swift and satisfying conclusion to legal proceedings. He is client-agnostic, representing both those parties who are bringing forth the legal action and those parties who are being sued. By facilitating prompt resolutions to these disputes, our clients can move forward with their lives. They can further minimize expenses directly associated with legal proceedings and the indirect consequences, for instance, the cost associated with missed work lost productivity, or even damage to one’s personal or professional brand (as applicable).
While there are apparent nuances to each case, if the case moves forward through the court system, there are some general steps in the process to keep in mind. We say this process remains an “if” because there may still be ways for you to avoid litigation. Our lawyer has a unique background and set of skills, which differ from other practices in and around the Greater Toronto Area. You may be able to resolve the dispute satisfactorily with Mr. Gujral’s substantive mediation and arbitration skills. That is an excellent avenue for appropriate cases and situations to avoid the expense, headaches, time, and stress associated with lawsuits and other civil legal proceedings.
If this is not an option or we cannot arrive at a definitive resolution, civil litigation generally involves considerable paperwork on the front-end, which our team handles adeptly. Our professional services span drafting documents and “discovery” (we question the other party to glean information that may be used to inform the case and, on your behalf,). Ultimately, judges or juries will hear evidence from both sides of the aisle (plaintiffs and defendants) to determine the “burden of proof” – if it’s likely that the party being sued was responsible for what the party who filed the claim alleges. Essentially, lawsuits end with monetary damages or settlements. But they may also include specific orders related to “performance” that the defendant must abide by.
