Commercial Litigation Law Firm

The British common law system serves as the foundation for most Indian laws. This implies that decisions made by higher courts (such as the Supreme Court and high courts) serve as a binding precedent and are used as a guide in cases involving comparable legal and factual issues that are decided by subordinate courts in the future. Additionally, the legal system is adversarial. The pertinent procedural codes include the rules that govern litigation.

The Code of Civil Procedure, 1908 normally governs civil conflicts, whereas the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 governs criminal proceedings. The Evidence Act of 1872 contains the rules of evidence. The parties’ substantive rights will be governed by the relevant substantive acts passed by the Parliament and/or state legislatures applicable to the case, such as the Transfer of Property Act, 1882, the Contract Act, 1872, or the Indian Penal Code, 1860, in addition to the procedural and evidentiary rules. Adding to these rules, there are various special regulations to govern some specific claims such as Consumer protection, Companies Act, RTI Act, etc.
