How long do I have to commence litigation?
Nearly all causes of action have a limitation period in which an action must be brought before the court. A failure to bring an action before that time can mean you are unable to commence proceedings.
This limitation period varies depending on the cause of action, with a general rule that proceedings cannot commence after six years. In cases of defamation there is a limitation period of only one year from the date of publication.
Some employment law matters only have 14 days to commence litigation. Our team has broad litigation experience. If you want to know where you stand in a matter and get the best solution for you, talk to the team today.
