Partner, and Head of our Family department, Emma Briggs is part of the South Cumbria and North Lancashire Collaborative Law Group.

Collaborative Law is a form of family Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) where specially trained lawyers acting for each party resolve family law disputes through a series of four-way meetings attended by the parties and their respective collaboratively trained lawyers.

This week Emma appears in the Westmorland Gazette with her fellow collaborative lawyers asking “is there such a thing as a good divorce?”.
