Collaborative Solutions

Collaborative Law is an effective alternative to an employment discrimination lawsuit. At Markus and Sheridan, LLP we specialize in representing our clients in the collaborative process.

Unlike litigation, Collaborative Law:

  • Provides a respectful, confidential, and private dispute resolution forum;
  • Offers an efficient, client-centered process that encourages good-faith negotiations and reduces the financial and emotional cost to the parties;
  • Allows the parties to identify their individual interests, address mutual concerns, and decide on options that work best for them; and
  • Facilitates open communication and workable practical solutions.

How Does Collaborative Law Work?

At Markus & Sheridan, LLP, our attorneys view collaborative law as an opportunity for clients to stay in control of their legal proceedings through a series of face-to-face meetings to address your interests and negotiate terms through constructive communications. In the collaborative process each party retains his or her own collaborative lawyer to represent them and facilitate an agreement. Both parties agree to reach a settlement and if someone withdraws from the collaborative process, all parties must find new legal representation.

Neutral Third-Party

Often other professionals join in the process. For example, an economist or financial advisor can provide a neutral damage analysis of damages and provide advice to reach common sense solutions without the cost of dueling professionals. In addition, a diversity specialist can help the parties in dealing with cultural, gender, or racial differences and facilitate negotiations based on reason rather than emotion.

Collaborative cases are most successful when the team, including both attorneys and the third-party neutrals, is knowledgeable and dedicated to the process. For effective representation in collaborative law, contact our law office at 914-241-6300 or e-mail us. We serve clients throughout White Plains, Westchester County and the New York City metro area.
