Successfully resolving a family law matter is both an art and a science. In addition to the technical legal aspects, to conclude a higher percentage of your matters, you need to understand the various personalities, psychologies, dynamics, and relationships at play among the parties, their lawyers, and often various others. How does one effectively use those aspects in the negotiations and dispute resolution? Our seasoned family law lawyers, mediators, and judges share their advice, strategies, secrets, and hard-won wisdom, all in a fast-moving and engaging format.

Even if your case makes it to court, chances are it won't end in a multiday trial. The overwhelming majority of family law cases that start in the court process will settle before a judge renders a final decision. In fact, the family court system in Ontario is structured to encourage consensual resolution at each juncture; experienced counsel know this and make it work to their client's advantage. How? By employing various strategies to create the conditions conducive to achieving a favourable and durable settlement. Our presenters teach you these critical, often subtle skills by exploring in detail the key aspects needed to move the matter towards a settlement.

  • Understand how to effectively use negotiation strategies
  • Learn which outside resources and experts are needed to assist in resolution
  • Get tips on drafting conference briefs
  • Be aware of how to maximize the value of the trial management conference
