Too often disputes become declarations of war. We have seen the damage to families and relationships, to dignity, self-esteem and to wellbeing that litigation can cause. We recommend Collaborative Practice as the most appropriate dispute resolution process.
Collaborative Law is a process of dispute resolution in which clients and their lawyers commit to meet and negotiate their dispute without the threat of Court. In fact if either party wants to go to Court, both lawyers are disqualified from acting. This means that the lawyers acting in a collaborative matter are 100% committed to negotiating a settlement. The negotiations are conducted in good faith, and the parties are set up so that they maintain the best chance of being able to co-parent, work together or have a reasonable and respectful relationship into the future. In a Collaborative case, the parties:
• Are each represented by lawyers trained in collaborative
• Agree to exchange information in an open and
• Negotiate in “four-way meetings” in which both the
parties and lawyers participate
• Hire experts jointly if experts are needed – experts may
include psychologists, accountants or another
• Promise to take a reasoned stand on every issue and to negotiate in good faith
• Don’t take unilateral action, i.e. involving one side or
• Don’t exchange provocative correspondence
• Work hard to make sure that they maintain a
relationship that is workable for the future.
• Family Law
• Wills, Trusts & Estates
• Personal Injury
• Business, Commercial, Property & Leases
