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.
