Keeping you out of Court
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) refers to the different ways of resolving a dispute, without going to Court. There are many forms of dispute resolution:
- early-stage mediation
- collaborative practice
- arbitration, and
- late-stage mediation …
Alternative Dispute Resolution often costs less, and the parties keep control of the outcome. Rather than a ‘winner’ and a ‘loser’, there is often a compromise from both parties, and hopefully more satisfaction than if a Court make a decision.
At TBA Law, we prefer to resolve problems for clients in creative ways, trying to avoid Courts where we can. We offer a range of alternative dispute resolution processes, either directly working with us, or with us sourcing the resources for you.
This is a practice where everyone involved agrees that they will resolve the dispute without going to Court. This focuses all the professionals on reaching the best outcomes and solutions for the parties, rather than taking a traditional approach to negotiation.
All negotiations are confidential, and the practice usually involves an independent financial advisor and a psychologist. All the lawyers and other professional must be collaboratively trained to participate.
Our principal solicitor, Jacqui Brauman, is trained in collaborative practice for estate and succession planning, as well as any dispute after the death of a family member.
This process keeps you and your family members all on the same team, with shared goals, to create the best solution for you and your family. Collaborative practice often results in better outcomes for all involved, and keeps families together.
