Grand Rounds

The Elephant in the Room: Infidelity and
The Effects on the Collaborative Case

SEPTEMBER 17, 2021 at Noon

This month’s Grand Rounds, presented by Susan Keyes, Esq., Regina Zelonker, Esq., Dr. Lana Stern, and David Goldweitz, CPA/CVA of the CFLI practice group, will address the topic of infidelity in the collaborative case. The discussion topics will include how one client’s infidelity factored into the settlement and how the roles of the respective professionals in the process might be impacted.

  • How is neutrality maintained by team members and how does bias about infidelity impact his or her work in the process?
  • How do we help clients proceed where trust is broken?
  • What are the additional obligations (if any) on the part of the professionals in this circumstance?
  • How does a financial settlement play into the emotional aspects of the infidelity?

Please join us for what is sure to be an interesting session of the FACP Grand Rounds.
