Our family team consisting of Mediators, collaborate lawyers and expert Family solicitors attended the start of Dispute Resolution week with a breakfast reception at 1539 Restaurant Chester.
The sun was shining over the race course which obviously encouraged numbers to attend. We had many professionals present from varying backgrounds but all with the main objective of supporting families.
The objective for the breakfast meet was to raise awareness of the menu of options available to separating parties to resolve there dispute. This came at a timely announcement by Resolution that only 50% of those asked would consider alternative options other than court mainly because they were unaware of the choice. A short presentation was given by a traditional family solicitor, mediator , collaborative lawyer and an Arbitrator in order to give a taste of all the options together with the pros and cons.
Fun was had by all and a great start to the week.
