Macleod & MacCallum are delighted to announce that Jenna Thomson, Director has recently attained accreditation with the Law Society of Scotland as a Family Law Mediator.

A mediation accreditation from The Law Society Scotland is only granted once a solicitor has completed the essential mediation training and is able demonstrate their ability to deal with complex cases. The accreditation not only validates Jenna’s skills but shows her proficiency in mediating complex family law matters.

Jenna commented “I am very pleased to receive this recognition from the Law Society of Scotland, which adds to my existing accreditation in Family Law. It is the culmination of a lot of work and training, but it has been an extremely rewarding process.”

Mediation is a process in which disputing parties seek to build agreement and / or improve understanding with the assistance of a trained mediator acting as an impartial third party. It is a voluntary process which aims to provide disputing parties the opportunity to be fully heard, to hear each other’s perspectives and decide how to resolve their dispute themselves, for the benefit of them and their family. Family law mediation is an alternative method to deal with the issues arising from separation or divorce and can, when successful, remove the need for court intervention.

Alison Martin, Chief Executive added “Jenna’s accreditation serves as a testament to her dedication to her work and to her clients over a prolonged period and to her adherence to the highest standards of client service and professional development.”

Peter Mason, Managing Director also added “I am delighted to see Jenna successfully achieve this accreditation, which is thoroughly deserved.
