Webinar recording | Collaborative practice for wills and estates – a new way to help families resolve conflict over inheritance
with Zinta Harris
pre-recorded | Online
Join collaborative estates lawyer, Zinta Harris, who talks about the expansion of collaborative practice into wills and estates and the opportunities this new dispute resolution model presents for experienced mediators.
During the presentation, Zinta explains the theory and understanding of collaborative practice as an early-intervention, staged facilitation conflict resolution model and will explore its applications in wills and estates dispute resolution in both pre-death and post-death contexts. She outlines the differing roles of each member of the interdisciplinary professional team within the collaborative process. Zinta also explores the challenges that the multi-party and multi-capacity realms of wills and estates work can raise and the key roles an experienced mediator/communications coach can play in this newly emerging estate dispute resolution practice.
This webinar is for lawyers, counsellors and dispute resolution practitioners who interact with families wishing to prevent or resolve disputes over inheritance.
