It involves a series of joint meetings where both parties, along with their respective attorneys and sometimes other professionals, work towards a mutually agreeable solution.
Collaborative Law vs. Mediation
While both collaborative law and mediation aim to resolve disputes outside of court, they differ in structure and process.
Collaborative law provides a more structured framework than mediation, with each party having dedicated legal representation. This ensures a balanced process, especially in complex cases where legal intricacies are prominent. Another difference is that Collaborative law involves a team approach, incorporating not just lawyers but also other professionals like financial advisors and therapists, offering a holistic solution to disputes.
