Divorce lawyers have praised the “collaborative law” process for decades as a tool to reach amicable resolutions to sensitive disputes. At a time of record court backlogs – and when companies are being encouraged to consider all stakeholders – collaborative law is a welcome option for businesses looking to resolve disputes quickly and efficiently.

During this presentation, attorneys trained in collaborative law will answer questions such as:

  • What is collaborative law?
  • How does the process work?
  • When does it make sense for a business?
  • What is the difference between collaborative law and mediation?
