Dispute Resolution and Litigation

How long does litigation take?

This will depend on the nature and the complexity of the dispute.

How much time do I have to make a claim?

All claims are governed by a Jersey prescription / limitation period. For example for  a breach of contract,  proceedings should in general terms be issued within 10 years of the date on which the contract was breached. A negligence claim should in general be brought within 3 years of the date on which you suffered loss as a result of the defendant’s lack of care.

What are pleadings?

Pleadings contain the parties’ allegations, defenses and the facts on which those claims are based. Pleadings include the complaint, answer to the complaint, counterclaims/cross claims, answers to any counterclaims/cross claims, third-party complaints and answers to any third-party complaints.

What is discovery?

Discovery is the process through which the parties exchange factual information and evidence related to the case.  This process allows parties to obtain full disclosure of information and facts in relation to a litigation issue.
