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.
Probate, employment, medical error, and business formation and dissolution are among the most common areas where civil collaborative is the tool of choice.
The Global Collaborative Law Council is a growing group of attorneys attorneys committed to assisting clients in managing conflict and resolving disputes without litigation.
