Law 5


Collaborative law is a child and family-focused discussion which works to resolve disputes that is all about what you and your family need and want and then brainstorming ways for you to get it. As our client, you will have access to the skills of child specialists, counsellors, accountants, financial advisers, and other family professionals who can bring their expertise to the process, allowing us to concentrate on helping you in negotiations and focusing upon shaping a fair settlement that best meets your specific needs.

The Collaborative Law Process allows a greater degree of co-operation between a range of professionals involved to facilitate a broad range of family issues:

  • Disputes between parties
  • Financial issues
  • Child-related matters
  • Pre and post-marital contracts
