A collaborative family law lawyer, certified mediator, and certified Family Enterprise Advisor™ with over 30 years of experience, Nathalie listens to your goals and interests and skillfully guides you through the complicated family law system. Her calm but confident approach, and her high level of dependability foster good working relationships with all involved, which make settlements easier and less costly to reach, and generally result in a more positive experience for all involved, especially when there are children.
Nathalie’s commitment is rooted in the tremendous value that a collaborative out-of-court divorce process can provide compared to the lengthy confrontational in-court process. The collaborative process allows the couple to keep control of the process and the outcomes, rather that relinquishing decision making to an arbitrator or judge.
Whether embarking on the difficult path to separation or divorce or negotiating a pre-nuptial agreement, it is possible to achieve your desired outcome with confidence and dignity.
Nathalie specializes in situations involving entrepreneurs, professionals, and high-net-worth individuals, and situations challenged by difficult personalities.
Collaborative and Traditional Legal Representation
Nathalie develops personalized strategies to achieve out-of-court solutions for the complex human, legal, and financial issues related to separation, divorce, and prenuptial agreements. She specializes in situations involving entrepreneurs, professionals, and high-net-worth individuals, and situations challenged by difficult personalities.
As a family lawyer and accredited mediator, Nathalie is qualified to mediate both financial and parenting issues and she ensures the process meets legal standards. To avoid the costly exchange of numerous draft separation agreements between the spouses’ lawyers at the end of the process, Nathalie prepares the first draft of the separation agreement to ensure a fair process with neutral language.
Business Owners and their Families
Nathalie is one of a small number of Canadian family law lawyers who is a certified Family Enterprise Advisor™. Part of a family business herself, Nathalie understands the unique needs of families when a business is involved, and helps to develop strategies to preserve the business, often the major source of revenue for the family, from the negative impacts of separation and divorce.
