They will review concepts and techniques regarding the division of assets, process costs risk aversion, volatility, disruption and change in finances, and tools to evaluate options and understand possible solutions.
“Strategies for Streamlining the Collaborative Process” (Sunday, October 30, 2022, 9-10:30 am EST) – Rowny and two co-presenters will examine when it is appropriate to consider deviating from the traditional collaborative protocols, differentiate between protocols that can and cannot be streamlined, identify potential costs and benefits of streamlining, and share creative ways to approach option-generation and evaluation that were developed in cases where parties were having a difficult time participating effectively in the traditional collaborative process, and/or had limited financial resources to expend on the process.
