LMP supports Family Mediation Week

16/01/2022

Organised by the Family Mediation Council (FMC), Family Mediation Week (17 – 21 January 2022) is an opportunity to raise awareness of family mediation and its benefits to separating families.

The team at LMP is in full support of Family Mediation Week and applauds the goal of the campaign being to “let more people know about the benefits of family mediation and encourage separating couples to think about family mediation as a way of helping them take control, make decisions together and build a positive future for their family.”

The lawyers at LMP recognise the benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and opportunities to resolve family disputes out of Court.  Our website shares information about mediation, collaborative practice, arbitration, private hearings and round table meetings.

LMP’s Managing Partner, Simon Pigott, has a busy mediation practice and he says:

“Mediation is now an integral part of family law work – thankfully! While not for every couple’s circumstances, mediation provides a refreshing alternative to the more traditional and adversarial approach. Skilful mediators will offer options and alternatives with a view to finding solutions; they will provide a safe and constructive environment for the discussions; they will at all times be impartial and neutral. To be able to find a common ground will enable the couple, indeed the wider family, to manage better the consequences of the end of their relationship.”

Should you have any mediation enquiries, please contact Simon ([email protected]).  For general enquiries, please contact any member of the LMP team.  We are here to help with your enquiries in a sensitive and efficient way.
