Mary Siddall of Springhouse solicitors has been named joint Mediation Scheme Co-ordinator of the Year at the inaugural National Mediation Awards. The award relates to work that Mary did with the University of Southampton.
Mary commented: Many organisations are now making mediation part of their dispute resolution processes. There is growing interest in mediation as reforms to the employment tribunal process place a strong emphasis on early resolution of workplace disputes.
I would like to congratulate the internal mediators at University of Southampton (itself a finalist for Mediation Scheme of the Year) for all the hard work they have put into making the Mediation Service such an effective tool in tackling conflict.
Mary is an experienced employment law solicitor who has been a mediator since 2005.
