In all cases we will consider the best method for each client:
a) Collaborative Law
We have the necessary training in collaboration law. The aim of this method is to discuss and hopefully resolve issues in a series of four-way meetings between clients and lawyers. This method can be hugely beneficial for opening up dialogue and finding solutions to the issues.
In more straightforward cases, it may be useful for clients to attend sessions at the Jersey Mediation Service. However, many clients will want, or need, ‘lawyer-led’ mediation, where an experienced lawyer (usually from London) carries out the mediation. The costs are shared between parties and the method has a high success rate.
This is more akin to the court route in that the parties hand over responsibility for the decision-making to a third party (again normally a qualified lawyer-arbitrator from the UK). It has significant benefits over going to court as the process can be adapted to suit each case and it is cheaper and quicker than contested court proceedings.
