"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."
