Litigation is a relatively broad legal term that essentially covers any kind of legal dispute.
On 3rd February 2014 the jurisdictions of the Irish courts underwent their largest overhaul in many years. This in turn means that a new and innovative approach is required in many cases.
The changes are as follows:
1. The jurisdiction of the District Court in civil proceedings has been increased to €15,000
2. The jurisdiction of the Circuit court in civil proceedings (other than personal injury claims) has been increased to €75,000
3. The jurisdiction of the Circuit Court for personal injury cases has been increased to €60,000
Litigation can encompass many areas. This might be a dispute over a payment, trying to enforce a contract, damage to property by a third party, a partnership dispute, a disagreement over a will or a disagreement over a boundary; these are just some examples.
