In this podcast for CLI’s ReinventED Legal Business: The Case Studies seriesTerri Mottershead, Executive Director, Centre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific) chatted with Fiona Kirkman, Principal of Kirkman Family Law about her work and her businesses in family law.

Fiona’s vision is to empower families to obtain more amicable, efficient and cost-effective resolutions without court. Her passion is finding ways to utilise legal technology and dispute resolution processes to craft new ways to practise law. After working for over 15 years in traditional family law firms, Fiona brought her vision and passion together by starting her own family mediation firm - Kirkman Family Law - and a legaltech start-up with her techy husband Tim.

In this session, Fiona discussed how the legaltech products that they’ve developed - LawSwitch & FamilyProperty - work in her dispute resolution practice. If you would also like to see a demo of their FamilyProperty platform, you will find it here.
