A LEEDS law firm has launched a mediation department.
Blacks Solicitors is a 12 partner law firm operating from two offices in Leeds with a staff of 100.
The department will operate within its family law team under specialist mediator, Viv Hulland.
Ms Hulland, who trained with the Family Mediators Association in its early days in 1994, said: “Divorce can be an extremely stressful and emotional experience for those involved but mediation offers an alternative to resolving issues inside the courtroom.”
The family law team headed by Ann Robinson consists of Paul Lancaster, Victoria Lungu and Jane Ingleby.
