Working with Lawyers
Our reputation as superannuation valuers, consultants and expert witnesses in family law matters is well known to family lawyers, barristers and the family court. What is less well known is the important work we do with individuals and families, supporting them to understand their financial position and to make informed decisions about the impact of their family law settlement.
Over 10 years of working with clients going through and immediately after separation and divorce, we have learned that fear of their financial future holds people back from coming to agreement – especially women who have not been involved in making financial decisions in the past.
If you recognise the importance of taking a holistic approach to helping clients resolve the complex financial issues associated with separation, let’s talk about how we can partner with you to empower your clients so they can make informed financial settlement agreements.
We believe in a holistic approach to helping clients reach agreements that meet their own objectives and needs in a respectful and peaceful way. This is why we have developed a network of like-minded collaborative professionals who share our values and who are passionate about collaborative practice.
We have a network of trusted and experienced lawyers who we work closely with cases and who we are happy to refer our clients to. Nurturing a strategic alliance with a team of highly principled professionals who share your beliefs can only add value to your practice.
