Very often our team members are told that the process sounds too good to be true, and we are often asked if the Collaborative process really works. The simple answer is ‘yes!’ the process DOES work, and works very effectively. Why? because it puts you at the centre of the decision making process, but don’t worry…..this doesn’t mean to say that you’re alone. Throughout the process you have the support of your specially trained collaborative lawyer to help and guide you through the process, to make suggestions and answer any questions you might have. Your lawyer will encourage you to find a solution that works for you. This means that the final agreement is much more likely to stand the test of time.
Please contact any of our team members who can explain to you more of the benefits of the collaborative law process. We are always happy to answer any questions you might have.

"It wasn’t easy, but in the end, I felt that both I and my ex-partner were able to close the chapter knowing that we had done the “right” thing by each other.
