Collaborative Law is an innovative service whereby clients and their lawyers come together in a series of four way open discussions, with no facilitator involved. Collaborative Law is suitable for most people looking to resolve their differences without going to Court.
This process is unique because the Lawyers acting for the parties must enter into a contract stating that they will not take the matter to Court if the clients are unable to come to a dispute resolution and settlement. If the clients cannot reach a settlement then each of their Lawyers must retire from the case and the parties then need to retain new Lawyers if they wish to take their case to Court
Watts McCray was one of the first firms in Australia to commit to ADR and Collaborative Law and has played a leading role in both Collaborative Professionals (NSW) Inc. and the Western Sydney Collaborative Family Lawyers since they were first established. In addition to this, three of its partners are members of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, and several of its senior lawyers have been trained as collaborative lawyers with the University of Western Sydney.
