What is Civil Law

Civil law regulates the rights and obligations of private order, of people, their property and their relationships as members of society, therefore, it is a diversified area of practice. Some examples of performance in this area: relationship of companies with their customers and suppliers (fulfillment of contracts, charges); medical liability; civil liability; defense of the consumer code and banking law. From this large area, the Civil Lawyer seeks to analyze each situation in a unique way to present the best solutions for his client.



What problems can the Civil Lawyer solve for you or your company?

The most common problems are those involving financial issues, the famous "pain in the pocket", that is, when there are debts, irregularities linked to the bank, problems with suppliers, credit recovery, defaulting companies, consumer complaints, inclusion on sites such as "Reclame Aqui" (Complain Here), among others.



What are the benefits of hiring a Civil Lawyer?

As these are usually seemingly trivial matters, the businessman thinks he can solve them alone or that he can hire a "generalist lawyer" to solve his problem. But, as in all aspects of our lives, the sooner we act to stop a problem and develop a strategy to deal with it, the better the result, the same applies to Civil Law cases. Often cases come to the office at an "advanced stage", limiting the performance and efficiency of the proposed solutions. Thus, hiring a specialist as soon as the problem arises is sure of a good outcome with great savings! Get in touch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Check now the most frequently asked questions about this area of our work.

Is it important to try an out-of-court solution before filing a lawsuit?

Yes, in most cases, legal action should be the last alternative. This is due to the costs involved with the process, not only financial, but also in terms of time and the uncertainty of the decision. The extrajudicial phase is never wasted, it serves as preparation for the process, so that the parties know each other's arguments and documents and are able to make a good assessment of the case, understand what the other party wants, estimate risks and outline a strategy of how to proceed and how much to insist on the process. From the judges' point of view, they appreciate a compositional stance rather than immediate judicialisation.
In some cases, however, the judicial measure is the only option, especially in emergency situations or when there is a risk of losing the right. This should be carefully assessed with your lawyer.

Do I need to worry about the time limit for starting a lawsuit?

Definitely. It is important to know that the right to take legal action is not eternal. For each situation there is what we call a limitation or prescription period, depending on the case. Thus, the first information a client should get from his or her lawyer is what is the deadline to start the lawsuit and be aware that the extrajudicial negotiations take place during this period, monitoring so that the lawyer takes the necessary judicial measure before the statute of limitations or limitation.

Apart from the damage I have suffered, what other type of compensation can I claim?

Civil law often deals with compensation for damages, i.e. the payment by the infringing party of the losses it caused to the innocent party. These damages can arise from many different types of legal relationships: real estate, contractual, tort, consumer, commercial relationships, etc.

The main one is the repair of material damage, which is the measurable, objective damage caused to the party, such as, for example, in a car accident, the payment of the vehicle repair and medical expenses.

But, besides material damages, the party may request the payment of moral damages that do not have a market price because they are damages caused to the image, appearance, reputation, privacy, etc. They are, therefore, usually arbitrated by the judge. Thus, in the example of the car accident, if the innocent party has been left with scars on his face, this is aesthetic damage, susceptible of compensation for moral damages.
