Jennifer Williamson, Managing Partner of the Stowe Family Law office in Winchester, has recently completed collaborative law training meaning that she can now act for clients in a formal collaborative process. This service adds another method of dispute resolution that the Winchester office can offer its clients.
The collaborative process places an importance on reaching the best possible settlement for the whole family. This can often help people achieve the most dignified divorce or separation possible with long term benefits for all.
Collaborative law focuses on four-way face-to-face meetings involving both parties and their respective lawyers to work things out through transparency, communication and an open-mindedness to potential solutions. When all is agreed, they apply to court (by agreement) for the necessary orders.
Many people choose this process as they want to minimise the adverse impact of divorce on themselves, their former partner, children and wider family. As the bulk of work is completed by clients, with assistance from lawyers, it can also be a quicker and more cost-effective way to proceed.
Speaking about her qualification, Jennifer said:
“The skills and approaches I have learnt from the collaborative course will benefit all of my clients, whether they are resolving their matters collaboratively or not.
Virtually every case can benefit from consideration and respect for holistic factors and improved communication. I am very pleased to add further strength and depth to the skills that we have here in Winchester”
