Navigating civil matters, uncovering opportunities presented by motions
Litigation requires special talents. Not all lawyers have the passion, interest, or natural aptitude to litigate. Plus, not all litigation is the same. Civil litigators have unique knowledge and expertise. You can trust Tarunjeet Gujral’s blend of skills as a litigator and experience with various types of civil motions. Your case is in excellent hands by turning to Gujral Law Professional Corporation of Mississauga, Ontario.
The Opportunities Behind Different Types of Motions
Criminal law is associated with those behaviours that may be considered offensive against the public, province, and society – even if the victim is an individual. Civil law, however, relates to those behaviours and disputes that are injurious to, and among, private parties — from individuals to corporations.
Mr. Gujral is a talented litigator skilled at successfully navigating civil matters. The process includes filing a motion. Motions are in response to a “claim” or notice being issued, which allows for civil proceedings to move forward. The “mini-proceedings” or “mini-hearings” that fall under the broader “proceedings” umbrella are technically called “motions.”
As a procedural tool, motions come in a variety of different forms. Motions can be used when seeking specific relief or to compel cooperation from other parties. They largely span any directives, rulings, or orders on particular issues. In turn, they vary tremendously depending on the nature of the claim and your unique circumstances as a client.
Examples may include:
- Security (for costs)
- Certificate of pending litigation
- Noting in Default (when defendants fail or refuse to respond to the claims notice or statement)
- Summary Judgments
- Implementing timetables
- Producing documents; for instance, as a means of relevant documents from third parties outside of the court process.
- Answering undertakings
- Varying or amendments of court orders
Motions can be powerful tools; they allow us to get orders or directions not typically provided through the claims filing process. In fact, depending on the type of motion and the nature of the motion, we may be able to resolve the entire issue with this tool – avoiding going to trial altogether. In turn, we can save you and, possibly, your business the expense, time, and reputational damage associated with further proceedings.
Our experienced team will walk you through what to expect in every step and is available to answer any concerns or questions.
