Civil Litigation

Civil litigation refers to the process of resolving legal disputes between individuals, organizations, or entities through the court system. Unlike criminal cases, civil litigation does not involve the government prosecuting a defendant for a crime, but rather involves private parties seeking to enforce or protect their rights. Civil litigation can cover a wide range of legal issues, including contract disputes, personal injury claims, property disputes, and employment law matters, among others. The process typically involves filing a complaint or lawsuit, conducting discovery, and eventually proceeding to trial or settling the dispute through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution methods.


At Southern Legal, we undertake many different types of civil litigation and in some matters, we do brief Counsel to appear as an advocate, mainly where specialised knowledge or experience is a requirement.

We accept instructions, for plaintiffs or defendants, in the following types of cases:

 1. Probate Disputes,

 2. Family Provision Claims,

 3. Debt Recovery (Local Court General Division, District Court, Supreme Court)

 4. Real Property Disputes,

 5. Defamation, and

 6. Common-Law Claims
