A guide to collaborative law
Collaborative law is an alternative, and increasingly popular, way for couples to part ways. It involves sitting around a table together with your lawyers to come up with solutions for the family. Thrings’ family team recognises that the threat of court action can hinder rather than progress constructive negotiation between family members.
