Alternatives to court and collaborative law
We recognise that people may be concerned that involving lawyers will inexorably lead to expensive, contested court proceedings, but we can reassure you that in the majority of cases, this is not so. Although there will always be some cases in which court proceedings are necessary, often other methods of resolution are more effective and less expensive, time-consuming and stressful.
We will always consider whether it is possible to resolve matters through negotiation or other alternative methods of resolution such as collaborative law or mediation, before resorting to court proceedings. However, when appropriate, we will not hesitate to take a robust approach in order to protect our clients.
