Collaborative Law from LGFL Ltd
Collaborative law can help you reach an agreement with your former partner or spouse following separation, outside of court proceedings. It can save you time, court fees and a great deal of stress and anguish.
How collaborative law works
Since a collaborative law approach doesn’t require court dates, the timetable can largely be set by you and your former partner.
- Everyone involved must sign an agreement to confirm that all attempts will be made to resolve matters outside of court.
- Each of you instructs your own collaboratively trained lawyer to represent you.
- Everyone take part in a series of face-to-face meetings.
- You have the benefit of expert legal advice alongside you in the room, and throughout the process of trying to reach an agreement.
A collaborative law agreement still involves full and frank financial disclosure but can lead to matters being dealt with faster and more amicably.

Is collaborative law right for my situation?
Due to the face-to-face meetings involved, collaborative law is not for everyone. If the collaborative law process breaks down, we could no longer represent you in any future court proceedings.
