Pembridge Solicitors are a UK based law firm specialising in Civil Litigation Law.
Civil ligitation law is a branch of the common law legal system- the term refers to non-criminal law. The law relating to civil wrongs and quasi-contracts is part of the civil law as is law of property (other than property-related crimes, such as theft or vandalism). Civil law may, like criminal law, be divided into substantive law and procedural law. The rights and duties of persons (natural persons and legal persons) amongst themselves is the primary concern of civil law.
It is often suggested that civil proceedings are taken for the purpose of obtaining compensation for injury, and may thus be distinguished from criminal proceedings, whose purpose is to inflict punishment. However, exemplary damages or punitive damages may be awarded in civil proceedings. It was also formerly possible for common informers to sue for a penalty in civil proceedings.
Because some courts have both civil and criminal jurisdiction, civil proceedings cannot be defined as those taken in civil courts.
In England, the burden of proof in civil proceedings is, in general—with a number of exceptions such as committal proceedings for civil contempt—proof on a balance of probabilities.
