Case value

Case value – in most jurisdictions the term “case value” finds application in the Court Trials, where details the actual amount of the claim. In other words, this is the money pursued – usually the principal plus interest, plus the expenses involved in the process. The case value is one of the circumstances used to set up to which concrete court the claim should be lodged into, as well to establish the amount of the court tax due for entering civil claim, for example. The case value also is the base for calculating the lawyer’s fees, which usually depend on the material interest of the lawsuit.
