Lots of mediation, arbitration and litigation is how Suzanne Kingston describes her 2019. With more than 30 years in the industry, she has an enviable track record of advising on complex financial issues and children arrangements.
Kingston has noticed that arbitration is ‘absolutely’ gaining traction. ‘It’s taken a while, but I think the court system is in disarray, and so people are looking for out-of-court alternatives,’ she says, noting that mediation is also on the rise.
Many clients she says, are ‘fed up’ with taking things to court and waiting a long time. ‘They want to take it back into their own hands and think of dealing with things outside the court if they can.’
