Collaborative Practice is an increasingly popular way to resolve disputes without going to court. It emphasises interdisciplinary problem solving, negotiation and empowerment and can involve lawyers working with lawyers or other professionals trained in Collaborative Practice and their clients to respectfully resolve disputes.
This process is ideal for people who want to resolve their differences themselves and thus, stay out of court. It can add new dimensions to your skills and the services you offer your clients. And for your clients, a new way of settling issues guided by quality legal and other advice.
