Collaborative law is a way for couples separating or divorcing to deal with the family breakdown in a dignified and respectful manner with the aim to avoid going to court.
At Davis Blank Furniss our collaborative solicitors are a team of registered specialists who can support you during this alternative divorce process. With the experience to help couples who want to separate outside of court proceedings, our solicitors handle each case with compassion and care, helping you to reach a fair conclusion where all issues are amicably resolved.
What is the collaborative approach to divorce?
You each have a collaborative solicitor working on your behalf, where all issues and disputes are addressed in four way meetings. The face-to-face conferences allow the collaborative solicitors to share information with your spouse as well as explore and negotiate the problems.
By giving you the opportunity to resolve issues in person rather than through letters, phone calls and court proceedings, you can reach a conclusion that is workable and mutually acceptable. One where you have both been instrumental in achieving the outcome and within a supported environment.

Excellent experience start to finish – always very responsive to any queries and the turnaround on the property I was buying was very quick, even in the busy time leading up to stamp duty deadline. Jenny was always very helpful and went above and beyond to close on a short timescale.
“Very approachable, practical solutions to problems, but most of all very responsive which I personally think is very important because if you need help, you need it quickly, or at least to know someone is looking at it for you”.
Joanne Rowe, Finance Director, Greater Manchester Chamber
“Always able to contact, very approachable, friendly and professional”
Nives Feely, JAM Recruitment
“I believe I have been able to establish a professional working relationship with everyone I have come into contact. Importantly, I sense the relationships which have been established give me the confidence that I can make contact with Davis Blank Furniss at any time and on any matter. I would also like to express my thanks to the very impressive “gatekeepers” who work in reception, not only for making me very welcome, but also for their professionalism”

“Thank you for your efficient and friendly help throughout this process. We have had it easy but your approach has been part of that”.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally for the ongoing support and assistance the firm has offered to our parents over the years. I hope also that we may be able to call on you if necessary in the future.”

“Jo always provides great service, understands our needs and delivers on her promises. Our needs are relatively simple but the complexity arises out of the volume of work and short time frames, Jo always delivers.”
Peter Fernandez, Corporate Director at Royal Bank of Scotland
“A big thank you to all who dealt with my wife’s claim… We would not hesitate to recommend Davis Blank Furniss to anyone that may be in a situation like we have been…”
Anon (Personal Injury client)
“Before putting my case in Kirsty (Morbey)’s capable hands I’ve met a couple of other solicitors. None of them listen to me as intently as Kirsty and showed me as much empathy and understanding as she did. Simultaneously she was able to look at my case from legal perspective, explain all the options and follow each of our meetings with written summary of the discussed matters (in timely manner). Her advice was invaluable and led me to successfully ending the case matter (hopeful for good). I’m forever grateful for he work and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for reliable, knowledgeable and committed solicitor”.
