Collaborative Professionals NSW > A Movement From The Narrow Concept of Problem Solving

Posted on August 17, 2013


From Collaborative Professionals NSW:

In theory, any matter that is capable of being litigated is capable of being resolved through the Collaborative Process. Family Lawyers in the USA, Canada, UK, parts of Europe and Australia have been quick to recognise the benefits of Collaborative Law. However, other civil and commercial issues as diverse as disputes between franchisee/franchisor, lessor/lessee, employer/employee, contracts for the supply of goods or services, disputes between company directors or business partners, building matters and family provisions matters, to name but a few, are all eminently suited to the Collaborative Law process.

Collaborative Practice is not a panacea; it is another dispute resolution tool for the use of dispute resolution professionals, a further tool to be included in their toolbox together with mediation, conciliation, arbitration and litigation.

It does however, require the appropriate training of lawyers and other professionals wanting to engage in Collaborative Practice to ensure that the interests of clients are protected and to preserve the integrity of the process.
