Civil litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. A lawyer who specializes in civil litigation is known as a “litigator” or “trial lawyer.” Lawyers who practice civil litigation represent parties in trials, hearings, arbitrations and mediations before administrative agencies, foreign tribunals and federal, state and local courts.
In civil matters the disputants can be individuals, corporations, estate trustees, governments or their agencies and other legal entities.
There is an endless array of types of civil disputes. No one court or tribunal is given authority to resolve all of the different types of civil problems. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice is the primary court in Ontario for civil matters which go to court. There are however, many other courts and tribunals charged with the specific authority to deal with specialized disputes. Examples include the Ontario Municipal Board, the Ontario Rental Housing Tribunal, the Ontario Consent and Capacity Review Board, etc.
