3 Benefits of Collaborative Practice

1. Focus on goals and interests

Collaborative practice allows both parties to identify and focus on their goals and interests.

2. Highly creative

The collaborative process allows the team of professionals to come up with customized creative solutions tailored to each party.

3. Better for high conflict

High conflict cases can be resolved with lower levels of conflict using collaborative practice. Take a look at our article on this concept. Runaway Train: Using Collaborative Methods to Derail High Conflict Court Cases.
