Zen Thompson, solicitor and mediator in our Family Team, has been appointed as an Assessor for the Law Society Family Mediation Accreditation Scheme. This appointment reflects his experience as a mediator, as he has been asked to assess applications for the Law Society’s Family Mediation Scheme, which is the benchmark of good quality family mediators. Zen is one of only 224 family mediators in England and Wales who have passed the Law Society’s rigorous accreditation process.
Mediation is becoming increasingly professionalised and Nockolds welcomes this development as we very much support the resolution of family issues in as constructive and child-centred way as possible, depending on the circumstances of each case.
Zen has a busy workload not only as a mediator but as an experienced family solicitor, and uses his experience of court proceedings to inform his mediation practice. If you would like more information about family law and mediation, or to discuss whether mediation could be of assistance in your situation, please contact Zen by email or call 01279 755777.
