Collaborative Settlements

Collaborative law was introduced in a family law context in the 1990s. Our firm has been at the forefront of adapting this process to the unique challenges of construction disputes.

In a collaborative process, an agreement is signed between both parties and their respective lawyers. A client engages our firm for the sole purpose of assisting it in finding innovative ways to reach a negotiated settlement with another party. While it is open to any party to resort to litigation even after the agreement is signed, as soon as the client does so, our firm as well as the other party’s lawyers are no longer able to represent them in that matter.

Glaholt LLP’s experience with this exciting new process allows us to guide our clients to strong negotiated settlements in a productive and respectful environment.
