The Challenge

The Mediation Specialists is a leading firm of lawyer mediators in family, workplace and commercial mediation. The implementation of the Children and Families Act 2014 introduced compulsory Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (a significant change in divorce proceedings).

We presented The Mediation Specialists as expert commentators on the impact this change would have on couples seeking divorce and the evolution of family law.
