Collaborative Law

Collaborative Law is an alternative conflict resolution method. This innovative friendly approach is, above all, a new way of understanding legal defence and justice from the perspective of certain values and principles. 
The process centres on the needs and interests of the parties involved, which are often unknown to them. It focuses on separating the person from the problem, managing emotions and relationships between the parties as they become participants in searching for and adopting a truly satisfactory agreed solution.
It consists of team negotiation between attorneys, their clients and other professionals (notaries, economic advisors, labour relations specialists, psychologists, psychiatrists, teachers, coaches, therapists…) who can work together to reach a long-term agreement through creative solutions based on respect, transparency, equity and confidentiality. 
The search for satisfactory solutions requires maximum transparency and exchange of relevant information.

The parties must therefore respect the confidentiality of the process. 
Collaborative attorneys taking part in these processes agree not to represent their clients in future legal disputes in the event that no satisfactory agreement is reached.
