Any law which deals with any kind of a dispute between individuals, organizations, or both is a civil law. Civil law mostly relates to the rights, their violation and hence, compensation. It is different from criminal law as criminal law is concerned with punishment as a remedy whereas civil law solves a problem with the awarding of compensation. Due to such differences, the procedure followed is also different for both the variations of law. Civil law procedures are always governed by the Civil Procedure Code. Civil Law can be further classified into various other laws which deals with different industries and also on the basis of social needs.
This is one aspect of law which requires a lot of attention as it dwells within the society. Criminal litigation is way different from civil litigation as the former rushes to punishment as per the penal law and the latter tries to settle with compensation and dispute resolution. Criminal law demands fine as well as punishment in order to make it more deterrent for the existing criminals in the society. We have a specialized team dealing with such cases where we put in our best of efforts to provide the appropriate relief.

Insurance has become a household term and is a basic part of life. There is much legislation that regulates insurance law, but what matters is the way each legislated rule and guideline is put into practical functionality. The following statutes regulate the functioning of the insurance sector in India:
- The Insurance Act, 1938
- The Life Insurance Corporation Act, 1956
- Marine Insurance Act, 1963
- General Insurance Business (Nationalization) Act, 1972
- Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) Act, 1999
We also advise companies for defining their strategy to enter into insurance sector in India, including investment structuring, the insurance regulatory framework and obtaining the requisite approvals. We advise our clients on the specific laws applicable as per the situation they face. Apart from the insured ones, we also have a success in representing certain insurance companies in Tribunals and other forums. We have also extensively worked with the insurance regulator i.e. Insurance Regulatory Development Authority (“IRDA”), on various policy and regulatory issues.
Indians are mostly excited about marriages and equally worried about troubled marriages. Marriages form an integral part of every Indian family and hence, their legality and validity also has to be taken care of. Due to the vastness of diversity in the nation, the matrimonial laws are different for every religion based on their beliefs. There is yet a long way to go before the various disparate matrimonial laws can be made to yield to a uniform law. The chief obstacle in the way is the fact that the present marriage laws are too much religion-oriented. Muslim Law has its own code of principles for marriages, Hindu Marriage Act, 1955 applies to the Hindus, the Indian Christian Marriage Act, 1872 applies to Christians, Special Marriage Act, 1954 applies universally across all religions in special cases and so on.
Apart from just marriages, these matrimonial laws also have a codified set of rules and regulations regarding divorce as well which is enshrined in the Indian Divorce Act, 1869. Together, these laws govern and complement each other in the matrimonial aspect of legality in India. We help our clients get a solution to their problems and gain peace in their matrimony.
