Civil and Criminal Administrative Litigation Cases

Litigation in Taiwan is divided into three categories: civil litigation, criminal litigation, and administrative litigation.

The ordinary courts hear civil litigation and criminal litigation, and the administrative court hears administrative litigation.

1. Civil Litigation After a civil dispute occurs, the parties need to seek the basis of the right of claim in the substantive law and choose a dispute resolution mechanism in accordance with the Civil Procedure Law. Due to the concept of user-pays in civil litigation procedures, our lawyers assist clients to seek the most efficient and appropriate solution according to each case type:

(1) The conduct of civil litigation, mediation, reconciliation, objection, protest, appeal, retrial, and other procedures;

(2) Enforcement procedures and preservation procedures are carried out;

(3) Revocation of shareholders' meeting resolutions and other company equity disputes;

(4) Real estate rights disputes;

(5) Litigation cases related to apartment building management;

(6) disputes overdrafts, promissory notes, and cheque bills;

(7) Insurance claims disputes;

(8) Engineering contract disputes;

(9) Labor disputes.

2. Criminal Procedure

Criminal procedure is the procedure by which the state determines whether the perpetrator has the right to punish. The criminal procedure is based on the principle of three levels and three trials. The district court accepts the case of the first instance, and if it disagrees with the judgment of the first instance, it may appeal to the High Court of the second instance. Those who disagree with the judgment of the second instance of the High Court may appeal to the Supreme Court of the third instance. The Supreme Court is the Court of Final Appeal and cannot appeal. However, the first instance jurisdiction of the crime of civil unrest, foreign aggression, and obstruction of state diplomatic relations belongs to the High Court.

We can handle the following criminal proceedings:

(1) Defense of various criminal cases;

(2) The agent for the victim to file a complaint;

(3) Accompanying the police station and the investigation bureau to make transcripts.

3. Handling of administrative disputes. Disputed cases in public law are called administrative litigation procedures and are divided into petitions and administrative litigation: 

 (1) Administrative relief such as review, petition, and administrative litigation;

(2) Administrative remedies for trademarks and patents;

(3) Administrative relief for land expropriation compensation fees; 

(4) Administrative relief for tax disputes.
