Lawyer Negotiation in Family Law Matters

What is lawyer negotiation?

In the process of lawyer negotiation the negotiating is left to the lawyers and is usually done in the client’s absence.

Clients meet privately with their lawyers through this process and the lawyers check in with the clients to keep them informed of the negotiations.

Negotiations occur between the two lawyers through correspondence, exchanges of relevant information and may include one or more round table meetings.

This process may be a preferable option for those couples who are not comfortable to sit in the same room as their respective partner to negotiate a settlement.

This process may also be desirable when there has been a history of domestic violence or when there are significant power imbalances between the couple.

At Resolve Conflict, our first and foremost interest is ensuring a fair and respectful outcome for our client’s future without involving Court action.
