Choose Collaborative Law for
round-the-table negotiations

 

Collaborative Law requires you, your partner and your respective Collaborative Lawyers to form a single team which will resolve issues, either as you enter into a marriage or civil partnership or as your relationship comes to an end.

Collaborative Law can be especially appealing to professionals used to participating in pragmatic business negotiations.

Your aim is to reach a fair settlement which takes into account the needs of your whole family and avoids the uncertainty, hostility and unpleasantness that can result from allowing the court to decide issues relating to your children, property or finances.

Our proximity to the City of London is convenient whether you work in or are travelling into the City. Our Collaborative Lawyers can call on an expert team of Collaborative Law trained professionals including barristers, accountants, independent financial advisors and family consultants to secure a successful Collaborative Law outcome.

 

Collaborative Law - The Process

At the outset, you each identify what is important to you and, together with your respective Collaborative Lawyers, sign a Participation Agreement which sets out your goals and aspirations and commits you to resolving issues without going to court.

Because all negotiations take place in a series of face-to-face meetings at which you have the chance to ask for clarification and, because there are generally no letters between lawyers, there is little chance of the misinterpretation or mistrust which can so often lead to unnecessary acrimony in a traditional divorce.

Once you reach an agreement, your Collaborative Lawyers will prepare a settlement which, if necessary, they’ll submit to the Court for approval.

Collaborative Law - The Benefits

Like Mediation, Collaborative Law is non-confrontational and can help you to build a better framework for communications in the future, which can be particularly helpful if you will continue to co-parent your children after your divorce or dissolution of your civil partnership.

With Collaborative Law, you remain in control, proceed at a pace to suit you and arrange meetings at your convenience. You and your partner make decisions you can both live with and avoid the uncertainty of Court-imposed solutions, to a Court-imposed timetable.
