DCACP Membership Program and Dinner

Come join us for the presentation, Creative 'Out-of-Court' Process Options: How to Keep Our Work Effective and Ethical.  Presenters: Debbie May, Sue Soler, Suzy Eckstein.

Given the current reality in our community that attorneys, MHPs, financials and adjunct professionals are frequently working together on cases without a Collaborative Participation Agreement, we want to polish and refine our process protocols for co-mediation, cooperative and “Small c Collaborative” cases. This means we need to create and discuss what the protocols might be. This program will explore topics that include:

  • The importance of using clear retainer agreements for all professionals no matter how the process takes shape
  • How to think about transparency vs. confidentiality and privilege when there is a cooperative process but no Collaborative Participation Agreement.
  • How to establish clear boundaries and roles for all professionals on one case when there is no formal “team”.
  • Suggestions for setting up effective communication protocols for cooperating professionals
  • Ideas for borrowing many of the Collaborative protocols we have found so helpful – but being mindful that without the “Big C” there may be pitfalls in the process.
