What Is General Civil Litigation?

General civil litigation is an umbrella term that refers to lawsuits that are tried in civil court. This includes matters related to business law. Many business disputes that cannot be resolved through mediation or arbitration end up being tried through civil litigation. Individuals and corporations involved in civil litigation, whether plaintiffs or defendants, can immeasurably benefit from the assistance of experienced litigation attorneys, as your opponent surely is.

Types of Civil Litigation Matters in Business

Business law is a very broad field, so there are many different types of business disputes that could end up in civil litigation. Some of these include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Warranty disputes
  • Employment law
  • Zoning disputes
  • Real estate law
  • Workers compensation
  • Consumer litigation
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Breaches of confidentiality
Of course, these are merely examples. Any business dispute that cannot be resolved between the parties directly involved in the matter has the potential to be litigated.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

In civil matters, many disputes go through an alternative dispute resolution process. This is done in an effort to resolve the matter between the two parties prior to incurring the often significant expense of trial. Through alternative dispute resolution the parties seek to avoid the expense and unsurety of trial to resolve the dispute.

Experienced business attorneys can help companies successfully navigate the alternative dispute resolution process. Through successful mediation and arbitration, parties can reach a desired outcome that’s beneficial to them both and therefore, avoid a costly public trial.

5 star ratingWe were looking for some legal advice. We couldn't make his last appointment so he suggested we met on Sunday. Sunday? What lawyer works on a Sunday? From that first meeting Mr. Ensberg has been very professional, knowledgeable and efficient. He went above and beyond for us to ensure the court ruled in our favor. He was straight forward which left no room for surprises whether good or bad. He was always thinking ahead and was somehow prepared for whatever scenario was presented. He is respected in the court room and is very well prepared. I understand what others are saying about lawyers only being in it for the money but I do not believe that Mr. Ensberg fits that bill. We could not have been happier with every aspect of his representation and highly recommend him.
