Shahida Jogi and Rachel Lim outline how private client and family lawyers can work together

Lawyers today must take a collaborative approach in conjunction with their peers and colleagues to provide rounded and holistic advice to their clients. Family lawyers must be prepared to identify and highlight salient issues, sometimes outside of their field of expertise, and keep abreast of developments in key areas such as property law and private client law. Likewise, a private client lawyer must be aware of when their advice may be complemented by – or conflict with – family law advice.
