Separating or divorcing is never easy, but when couples and their lawyers take a less adversarial approach, the entire family benefits. This is an approach encouraged in many jurisdictions and, where appropriate, we are committed to the practice of collaborative law for resolving family law matters, including divorce, separation, financial and property disputes.
When working collaboratively, the parties and their legal representatives agree to resolve all issues of their case without contentious court proceedings. They plan together to craft an agreement, only applying to court to process an agreed form of divorce petition and to sanction the final consent order.
The collaborative model is often faster and more “user friendly” than court proceedings. It can help keep channels of communication open between participants, which is vital where there is a continued need to co-parent children. It can also help parties to conclude an agreement which they can live with for the long term.
In some instances, the collaborative process is not an option and in such cases we ensure that our clients have competent representation in whichever forum they find themselves litigating.

Irene, just wow !!! You are just so brilliant. Your personal touch, your conversation and your immediate responses to get the ball rolling and keep everything we have needed and wanted in motion has been invaluable. You are a true unsung hero of the last 5 years.
I worked with Dee during 2014 for my divorce. For what is a stressful situation, I was given clear and professional advice, together with guidance on the various options available to me. This helped me to reach a speedy and satisfactory conclusion, with a minimum of stress.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to James Berry and Associates and especially Madeleine Mendy. I was highly recommended by a friend to come and see Madeleine for some professional legal advice which has been the best decision I've made. Financially and emotionally I was not in a good place. From the very first time I met Madeleine she made me feel at ease, with her friendly manner and very approachable persona. She gave me sound and professional advise, always had answers for my questions and gave me several options to move forward. Madeleine is a very professional, caring person. Nothing was too much to ask and she always went above and beyond what she needed to do. She managed to reduce the tremendous pressure I was under and turn a no win situation into my advantage. I couldn't be happier with the finished result. I am truly grateful and will always recommend her services. I have lived in Dubai for fourteen years and it is very rare to receive such outstanding service.
Two years ago I had occasion to use the family law department. Despite my documents being lost by another law firm, Irene, a legal secretary with James Berry Associates, went above and beyond what would normally be expected of her. My documents were retrieved due to her tenacity and professionalism.

Michael and Sophie both came into the marriage with considerable wealth and Sophie wants to enter into a Post Nuptial Agreement to ensure that both parties’ assets are protected in the event of a divorce. The parties intend to live in Dubai for the foreseeable future.
