Don’t wait to litigate; trust our considerable expertise in favourably resolving civil matters
If you have been wronged and are seeking legal recourse, civil litigation is a pathway to compensation and other damages for existing losses as well as future losses. Conversely, you may represent the party that is “being sued.” It would help if you had an experienced lawyer like Tarunjeet Gujral on your side.
Gujral Law Professional Corporation has considerable expertise in successfully representing both plaintiffs, bringing claims forward, and the defendants responding to them. So, regardless of whether you are initiating a lawsuit or responding to it, your case is in excellent hands with our team in Mississauga, Ontario.
The need for expertise
The term “litigation” broadly refers to the process of settling disputes in court. Unlike criminal cases, civil cases (“suits” or “actions”) are private in nature. The individual, corporation, or group is not subject to prosecution under public law statutes like the Criminal Code. Two parties may not see eye to eye over a range of legal matters, from the terms of contracts to the circumstances surrounding and the responsibility for personal injuries or property damage.
Plaintiffs may, in turn, seek monetary damages or other “remedies.” The results of civil proceedings may also clarify the respective rights of parties; for instance, a declaratory resolution may be provided related to disputes over who owns property or land holdings. Likewise, injunctions may be sought to prohibit an individual or other parties from certain actions or behaviour; for example, the court may order a neighbour to remove refuse from a property. With skilled and qualified legal representation to support a favourable resolution to a case, defendants can avoid potentially considerable costs and reputational risks.
Furthermore, by enlisting the expertise of a talented lawyer with a proven track record of success in civil matters, you avoid the additional expense associated with paying for legal fees. In our province, the responsibility for the winner’s court costs and legal fees falls on the loser in the case. So, if you lose the case, you would be personally liable for both your fees and at least a portion of the other party’s fees. This would be in addition to any additional damages as deemed appropriate by the court.
