Offering Clients Fresh ADR Options - All You Need to Know to Start Arbitrating Family Law Disputes

Friday, 6 May 2022

Are you wanting to offer your clients non Court-based options for resolving financial cases, but have questions before you commit your first client to the arbitration process?  This 2-hour presentation by AIFLAM Chair, Andrew Davies, will provide you with the factual and legal detail underpinning arbitration under the Family Law Act. From the benefits for clients, to procedural matters, this seminar with useful arbitration material will cover everything you need to get your first arbitration under way.

For those practitioners contemplating how this session can practically help them in expanding their skills, and service offering for clients, the Hon Colin Forrest SC says “The ability to take a client’s property dispute to arbitration as a faster, potentially cheaper and thoroughly sound alternative to litigating in Court is a great add-on to the modern family lawyer’s skill set. I will be chairing this session designed to deliver all the information you need to confidently be able to do so. Come along, learn all about arbitration and meet the experienced arbitrators who are providing this service across Queensland and beyond.” 

The Hon Michelle May AM QC says "Arbitration, in my experience, is suitable for every property dispute. The process has the advantage of greater control in the hands of the solicitors, flexibility and certainty. The award (the judgment and orders) will be delivered within 28 days of the hearing being concluded. Specialist family lawyers are now confident to recommend arbitration to their clients, finding them to often be the best alternative."
