Civil Litigation

Civil litigation is a broad term which includes disputes involving individuals, business entities or governmental agencies seeking to recover monetary damages, or to enforce or establish rights or
obligations. Our civil litigation lawyers in Hawaii can help with contracts, negligence, and more.

Elements of Litigation

Civil litigation can involve contractual disputes, injunctive relief which seeks to prevent or require certain acts, neighbor disputes, as well as claims sounding in tort, such as trespass, libel or slander, negligence and property damage. Generally, this type of litigation involves two parties with competing positions. Many times it can involve multiple parties with some of their positions aligning, or each party taking completely different positions.
