When it comes to legal terms and matters that are settled in a court of law, not all of us can be considered experts, while most of us will be completely unfamiliar with certain terms. Although these legal terms tend to explain themselves, sometimes you need someone who can put it in Layman’s terms for you, especially when you have an upcoming court case, or would open one against another party.
This might be one of the terms you are not too familiar with, but does explain itself in the end. Civil litigation refers to a legal dispute between two or more parties, where a party would seek compensation for money- or performance-based damages, as opposed to criminal sanctions. Civil litigators refer to the lawyers who specialise in these specific legal matters, and are also known as trial lawyers.
Normally, these cases revolve around debt between two or more parties, and can extend to environmental law, housing law, products liability, intellectual property, labour, and employment. With these in mind, you can clearly see the difference between civil litigators and other lawyers who are honed towards criminal sanctions, although both are aimed at serving justice to the wrong-doers in this world.
The government commonly employs civil litigators, with advocacy groups and private practices offering legal services also on the list. These lawyers would usually rely on their analytic skills and negotiations to get their clients the desired outcomes in their cases, involving proper legal research and strong client relations to be successful.
