Collaborative Attorneys

At Separating Together:

Member Attorneys are attorneys who do not litigate and who focus their practices upon the peaceful and non-adversarial resolution of conflict

Affiliated Attorneys are attorneys who have a combined litigation and collaborative law practice

Regardless of which type of attorney a party retains, if the parties are not able to reach resolution through the collaborative process, the Participation Agreement which they sign requires them to retain new counsel if they choose to litigate.

In other words, even if they are represented by an Affiliated Attorney during the collaborative process, they must retain a different attorney if there is an impasse. It is this disqualification requirement which keeps parties engaged and committed to a peaceful process.
