If you are involved in a complex legal matter or one which seems to drag on endlessly sometimes having both parties agree to enlist the help of a case manager can help to keep things on track. When I work as a case manager I help lawyers, and accountants, and business valuators, and medical experts set and keep timelines. I convene meetings to discuss next steps and to explore ways to keep things streamlined.
In collaborative files things do sometimes get stuck. Having me come in can get things moving again adding some new, practical, and focused energy.Often, when a new person with a firm hand on the tiller and a talent for active listening joins the dynamic, even for a short time, fresh perspective and new options for settlement can appear. The additional expense is well worth it considering the investment, and it is far cheaper than abandoning the process and transitioning into court.
