Civil Defence Lawyer: Civil Litigation

What is a Civil Defence Lawyer?

If a civil court claim has been made or threatened against you, a civil defence lawyer can defend your rights in a civil litigation matter. Civil disputes are common and often arise between parties for a variety of reasons. Legal disputes can become very time consuming and can have a serious impact on finances and relationships. It is for these reasons that it is crucial to have an experienced civil litigation solicitor on your side in order to reach the best possible resolution to your dispute.

Dispute resolution solicitors can assist clients by helping parties involved to resolve disputes in a variety of ways. They help by providing specialist advice on legal issues, engaging in different alternative dispute resolution methods, such as negotiation or mediation, or through the use of litigation proceedings at court.

South Bank Legal’s civil defence lawyers have a track record of delivering cost effective litigation and dispute resolution services to individuals involved in legal disputes.

Our success is based on an unwavering commitment to clients’ objectives and an ability to provide clear and decisive legal advice to clients, even in the most complex civil disputes.

The Role of a Civil Defence Lawyer

A civil defence lawyer will be required to carry out a variety of tasks in the course of representing their clients and defending claims on their behalf, such as:

  • Exchanging information with the other party as part of the disclosure process
  • Advising on the best defence strategy available based on the information their client provides
  • Presenting the defence in court via a barrister
  • Engaging in alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation
  • Negotiating with the opposing party during the settlement phase of the case

How can South Bank Legal assist?


Our civil dispute lawyers assist on a wide range of disputes, from defending complex breach of contract claims and shareholder disputes, to defending money or debt claims on behalf of individuals or businesses.

In cases large or small, we consider that it is crucial to control the costs of litigation to ensure that perspective is not lost and that legal costs do not grow out of proportion to what is at stake.

Our client profile is diverse. As dispute resolution solicitors, we have represented government regulators, political parties and financial institutions, but we are equally at home when defending the rights of individuals against big business, where a tenacious approach can more than even up the balance of power.

At South Bank Legal, our legal team have experience in all areas of commercial and civil law.
