The firm are delighted that we have been recognised in the Legal 500 for our expertise in family law and mediation. Directors Sally Clark and Laura Clapton have been recognised as recommended lawyers.
Since its establishment in 2015, Consilia Legal has quickly cemented its reputation as ‘dominant in the field of mediation in Leeds’, with many clients viewing it as their ‘first choice for mediators’. Sally Clark and Laura Clapton attract praise for their ability to ‘handle situations where communication has otherwise broken down; to the point where they have achieved agreement between parties in situations that appeared impossible’. The firm’s holistic approach to mediation is singled out, as is its level of service, which ‘regularly goes over and above that which is expected’. The firm’s client base encompasses an array of local, national and international clients, which it assists on matters range from divorce and the dissolution of civil partnerships, financial remedy cases, and private children law matters. Legal 500, 2018
The family department continues to grow in all areas of private family law including family mediation. The team was joined by Melanie Webb in June 2017, a former associate of Simpson Millar, who is a highly experienced family solicitor with a fierce reputation. Melanie was individually recognised in last year's Legal 500 praising her ability to “negotiate strong settlements”.
The department is going from strength to strength and the firm is excited to see what 2018 has in store.
