Civil Collaborative Practice

While Collaborative Practice originally arose in the family law arena, many lawyers have realized that it is an appropriate tool in other civil cases. In Civil (non-family) cases, it is still in the early stages.

The Global Collaborative Law Council is a growing group of attorneys attorneys committed to assisting clients in managing conflict and resolving disputes without litigation.
