Civil litigation is the legal process of resolving disputes between individuals, businesses or other entities. This can include court representation, as well as dispute resolution outside of court.

Being involved in a dispute can be at best inconvenient, and at worst stressful and expensive. At MWIS, our focus is on resolving civil disputes quickly and economically to achieve the best outcome for you.

Our civil litigation lawyers have an exceptional track record in dispute resolution, including court proceedings within the High Court, District Court and various tribunals.

Disputes we can help with

Our civil litigation team can help with a wide range of disputes, including: 

  • Commercial and contract disputes
  • Property rights disputes
  • Leasing disputes
  • Construction Contract Act disputes
  • Insurance disputes
  • Debt collection, bankruptcy and liquidations

Types of dispute resolution

While it may be necessary to go to court to resolve a dispute, our civil litigation lawyers are also skilled in alternative forms of dispute resolution. Negotiating a settlement outside of court may be the best way to resolve your dispute, as court proceedings can be expensive. Rest assured our civil litigation lawyers will work closely with you to determine the best way to proceed. If court proceedings are necessary, our civil litigation team will provide you with expert representation.

Our approach to civil litigation

We’ll always strive for the most successful result for you. But we’re also aware that most people prefer a cost-effective solution over success at any cost. That’s why we seek to fully understand your situation and the nature of your dispute, and can call on the specialist expertise of our other legal teams where necessary. This allows us to provide you with a dispute resolution service that fully meets your needs, and gives you the best chance of an advantageous yet cost-effective result.
