In Collaborative Law, all the professionals (lawyers and jointly-hired experts) are bound not to litigate in court (and they don't even threaten it!). The parties reserve their rights, if the collaborative process breaks down, to retain litigators and hire other experts to go to court. The process is like having settlement counsel for all the parties, and it focuses steadfastly on resolution by agreement of the parties with the advice of counsel.
Collaborative Law is growing fast and promises to be the dispute resolution process-of-choice in this decade. How can you keep a business dispute from holding you back? Collaborative Law lets you:
- Keep control in the hands (and minds) of business folk
- Preserve business relationships
- Save time and money - emphasis on saving time
- Keep things private
- Be creative about results
The Collaborative Law choice can be made before litigation starts or in the middle of it - turning an albatross into an opportunity. With the benefits of control, conservation and creativity, we can help you pursue this dispute resolution option. Disputes are part of business, and they create uncertainty. As Peter Drucker once said, "The best way to predict the future is to create it."
