Family Matters – Alternative Dispute Resolution with Scott Sharp

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Our Family Law team are back with another episode of their popular Family Matters podcast!

If this is the first time tuning into the series, our family team of Jackie Mensah and Sarah Pennicott help to make sense of the many areas surrounding Family Law, often with special guests in a chosen speciality.

We have documented the previous episodes on our website via our dedicated section, but if you’d like you can catch up with all our podcasts over at our specialise YouTube playlist.

After a short break, Jackie and Sarah have returned to the table and are joined by Scott Sharp of Westgate Chambers. Scott is regularly instructed to act for parents at all stages of child care proceedings, as well as private client cases involving child arrangement disputes inclusive of change of residency.

As well his work in family law, he also takes instructions in Civil and Crime cases.

During this really informative and entertaining session, they discuss the alternatives to Court such as mediation, collaborative law, arbitration and private FDRs. There are many advantages to these options and it’s important to always consider them as they will often lead to a swifter, more amicable and more cost effective solution.

If you would like to discuss any issues regarding divorce, relationship breakdown or any Family Law related aspect, please contact Sarah or Jackie on 01903 229999 or
