Collaborative Kayaking

Collaborative Law is a practice that requires finding the right balance in many different ways.  The goal of the Collaborative process is to reach agreements through negotiation and to avoid the expensive and emotional experience of Court.  Clients and their counsel must find a balance between individual advocacy and shared goals in order to reach solutions.  Finding this balance can sometimes be difficult and challenging, but also rewarding.

Kayaking is a great metaphor for collaborative practice, because it also requires balance and work in order to have a rewarding experience.  On Thursday, July 23, 2014 some members of the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council decided to bring the metaphor to life by joining each other for a summer afternoon of kayaking at Lake Cochituate in Natick.  Here are some pictures from the event:

If you have a dispute, ask yourself if you want professionals handling your case that can't get along?  Choosing one attorney to represent you in a traditional litigation or negotiation, leaves completely to chance who the other side hires.  Why take that risk?  If you choose a process like Collaborative Law, you increase the chances significantly that the professionals assisting you will know each other and know how to work together efficiently.
