Cooperative Law

COOPERATIVE LAW is a new and innovative dispute resolution method that emphasizes negotiation over litigation. Litigation is lengthly, uncertain, and expensive. More importantly, the emotional toll suffered by the parties can be damaging.

Cooperative Law can take several forms. In every instance, both parties must agree that they will cooperate in resolving the dispute. Cooperation means that they will freely produce all necessary information. It is further agreed that all issues will be fully negotiated before entering litigation.

Cooperative Law is gaining in popularity on the East coast and some Southern and Midwest states. Flexx LAW, PS is championing its use in Washington and offers training to attorneys and others engaged in dispute resolution.
