Many cases which would otherwise be resolved in civil or administrative courts may be extended to involve criminal litigation. Libel and other forms of personal and trade defamation, as well as perjury, are often brought in the criminal courts simultaneously with civil claims. Litigants will often also resort to the criminal courts in relation to industrial accidents, as well as insolvency-related claims for debts to the state and social insurance institutions. Criminal litigation experience is therefore frequently needed even in apparently commercial disputes.
