Healys and Resolution

Healys’ family lawyers in London and Brighton believe that adhering to the Resolution Code of Practice enables us to use mediation and conciliatory techniques which promote a sensitive, constructive, and cost-effective approach to divorce and relationship breakdown disputes.

We find that, in many cases, this approach is most likely to result in early agreement and promotes positive negotiation. While we will do our utmost to ensure such techniques are used, should the need arise we will always protect your interests, and those of your dependants, by employing robust litigation methods when necessary.
