Workplace Mediation Leeds
Offices in Leeds, Harrogate and London. Working with clients across the UK and overseas.
The team at Consilia Legal provide workplace mediation services throughout the whole of the UK, and regionally in Leeds, Harrogate and throughout South, West and North Yorkshire.
Our director Marie Walsh is a fully trained workplace mediator.
As an employment law solicitor and mediator, Marie has a wealth of experience assisting parties inside and alongside the workplace mediation setting.
We are able to provide a mediator to intervene in workplace disputes and assist in avoiding litigation.
Mediation provides an alternative approach to other workplace dispute resolution processes, such as grievance procedures and may be preferable to implementing this procedure or litigation to both the employer and employee.
This could be due to a number of reasons but mainly because it is, less adversarial, flexible, less formal, voluntary, less costly and confidential
One of the main reasons mediation is attractive is that it is confidential to the parties. The content of a mediation cannot be used in future legal proceedings without agreement from both parties.
This enables the parties to be more forthright at an early stage of dispute and feel able to speak openly in an attempt to fully discuss and resolve issues.
Used in the right context the result of a mediation may sometimes be the termination of the employment relationship but may equally be the maintenance of an ongoing and amicable employment relationship.
Dealing with relationship breakdowns at work can be extremely difficult, time-consuming and costly. It can be overwhelming for the people involved and can place the company at risk of claims for unfair treatment. Conflict in the workplace can cause stress, reduce performance and affect the culture of the company.
Workplace mediation offers the parties that are in dispute the opportunity to have the conversations that they really need to have in a safe, impartial, structured and confidential environment. The mediator provides a framework and setting for a facilitated negotiation to enable the parties to reach an agreement about how to work together in the future.
At Consilia Mediation we have dedicated, accredited workplace mediators committed to helping resolve workplace disputes across Yorkshire and the UK.

Did Not Disappoint
Marie was recommended to by a friend – and she did not disappoint. Great client service from the whole team, very practical and pragmatic advice and a happy client at the end of it!
Thank you, all. Highly recommend for employment law advice.
I’d like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to Andy Boyde for helping me with my employment issue. For someone who was in a difficult situation his knowledge and expertise helped guide me through the process. He always provided quick responses and was readily available to provide expert advice whenever I needed it. I was impressed with the knowledge and professionalism shown and would recommend him if you are ever in a complicated employment situation.
Patient & Understanding
I spoke with Victoria Horner who gave me not only patience and understanding, but excellent legal advice that left me feeling confident. I would definitely recommend Victoria and Consilia Legal.
Seriously On The Ball
Cannot recommend this company enough. Seriously on the ball, ring you back when they say they will and completely exceed expectations. Thank you Andy and all at Consilia.
Couldn’t have been happier
I couldn’t have been happier with your service – you and your team were a pleasure to deal with. I had absolute confidence in Marie and loved her pragmatic and no nonsense approach. I was also treated with total respect at what was a personally challenging time for me. Couldn’t recommend you highly enough.
Put me at ease
Marie put me at ease at all times and trusted that she would always work for my best interest. She did not let me down.
I am so grateful for all your help and support on this matter. It had been the first time I had been in such a situation and felt nervous and uncertain. Marie put me at ease and helped me to get a deal I was happy with. Thank you.
