Civil Courts governed within England and Wales include; County Court, Tribunals, High Court of Justice, Royal Court of Justice, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court of United Kingdom.
Civil Court jurisdiction covers a broad range of disputes, from small personal claims to disputes between large multi-million pound corporations. Not all civil cases end up in court, with the majority either being resolved through mutual agreement or via mediation. Those cases that do go to trial can take place in open court (can be attended by the public), closed court or the Judges private chambers. There are now a considerable amount of cases dealt with by video and we are fully equipped to attend to this for you. We can guide and support you all the way.
rulES & pRACTICE DIRECTIONS
There are rules, practice directions and orders to be followed in each type of Court which are in place to ensure that a fair and consistent judiciary system is maintained for every case. The rules include how a case should be presented, timescales for different stages of the procedures and what must be met in terms of administration and the way in which documents should be prepared within set timescales. There are sanctions for not complying with the rules and it is therefore important to get legal advice quickly. You can also miss an opportunity to bring a case if you miss the deadlines or the limitation period expires.
