Collaborative Practice

Although mainly used to resolve family law disputes in respect of divorce and separation, collaborative practice can be a useful tool in resolving a range of other disputes, including commercial and other business related disputes.

Collaborative practice is an approach designed to keep you out of court and focused on reaching a settlement.  A distinguishing feature of collaborative practice is the written agreement not to go to court.

 The collaborative process draws on the skills of professionals in a team designed to assist you to reach lasting solutions. All of the advisers in the FBCN work collaboratively with the personal and commercial goals of their clients in mind.

Most people would be familiar with the traditional litigation model of resolving disputes, and would agree that courts are generally not the best place to resolve family and other disputes.  Disputes often escalate within a combative litigation model, which can be particularly damaging to families in business.
