Litigation is the result of one party exercising their legal rights in a Court of competent jurisdiction. Depending on the type of action the appropriate venue may be a Court, or a specialised tribunal. The monetary size of the claim will also determine the venue, with the Local Court hearing certain civil claims up to $100,000 and District Court $750,000. Finally, the remedy being sought will also have a bearing on the venue, with certain Court's such as the Supreme Court of New South Wales having the necessary power to dispense equitable and declaratory relief.
Although almost all hearings at first instance are capable of being appeared to an appellate body, the presentation of a case at first instance must be thoroughly planned, meticulously executed and founded on solid law. A lawyer experienced in litigation will understand the Court rules, process and techniques to present your case in this manner to provide you with the best prospects of success.
