A resource for collaboration in divorce--and a practice development opportunity?

James Feldman and Howard Klein, speaking at BVR's Divorce Summit, commented that the growing trend toward collaborative settlement is particularly helpful for high profile couples, same sex couples, CEOs, and others who prefer not to have all their personal information broadcast via litigation. "You need to know that the couple is psychologically prepared for this approach," says Feldman. "If one of the parties is missing meetings, collaboration is not going to work." Appraisers interested in taking on the role of neutral financial expert can look for collaborative law groups in their area at IACP.
