Lawyer for lawsuits in Geneva

The law of lawsuits contains all the rules governing the procedures that any citizen may be led to initiate if he is the victim of a fault likely to lead to a civil conviction or a criminal offence.

Proceedings in civil courts are subject to the Federal Law on Debt Collection and Bankruptcy (LP). On the other hand, the Code of Civil Procedure defines the modalities of appeal against decisions rendered by the courts of the first degree. On the other hand, it defines the methods of proof that each party may use to demonstrate the validity of its claims.

Lawyer in charge of debt collection in Geneva

If you are a victim, the steps you must take to file a complaint are governed by the Code of Criminal Procedure. This requires that you first file a complaint with the prosecutor who decides what action to take on your complaint. He can either dismiss the case if he considers that the offence you are complaining about has not been sufficiently characterized, or he can summon the accused.

The Code of Criminal Procedure also specifies the conditions under which the accused or the civil party may appeal the decision rendered at first instance.
The intervention of a prosecution lawyer can be useful in court. You will need to choose a lawsuit lawyer who is familiar with the area of law applicable to your problem.
