We are a group of lawyers, mediators, financial planners and family consultants in Sussex, committed to the Collaborative Process. The Collaborative Process is an increasingly popular approach designed for resolving relationship disputes without going to Court or for negotiating agreements in advance of forming a marriage or civil partnership.
Our members work together with couples to form agreements and resolve disputes by negotiating constructively, minimising conflict and focusing on what is important to you.
