If you would like to make an online mediation/remote mediation appointment through Zoom the mediator will email you an appointment slot which will include a link. You can click on the link when the meeting is due to take place and you will be joined into the meeting. It is not necessary to download the application initially but it is advisable to familiarise yourself with the program. Once all parties and the mediator have joined the meeting, you will be able to see and hear each other from your device.
TOP TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL ONLINE MEDIATION
Ensure you have the correct equipment e.g. computer, laptop or tablet with a camera and microphone. Ideally the use of headphones is recommended for clarity and also to limit the chance of the mediation being overheard. Check your volume settings.
Check you have appropriate internet connection – we will run an internet quality test with you prior to starting a joint mediation session.
Privacy – mediation is a confidential process. Please ensure the video call cannot be overheard by another person(s). There must be no one else in the room with you. You must not record the mediation session.
Screen display – be sure to position your screen in a way which ensures the other party and the mediator can see your face and that you are at eye level to your camera. Have a look behind you and check you are content for the other party and the mediator to see your background
Turn off Distractions – please turn off any other devices or switch to silent mode whilst conducting the session so that there are no distractions and you can fully concentrate on the discussions within the mediation session.
Comfort - Mediation sessions can last several hours and so its important at the outset that you are comfortable. Check seating, room temperature and available refreshments.
Paperwork - If you do need any paperwork or a pen and paper for the session, have this with you at the start of the meeting so you don’t need to break off and disrupt the flow of the session.

What our clients say about Consilia Legal on
Thanks so much to Marie and the team for such a top class service for helping me out of a difficult situation. Would recommend to anyone in how quick everything was, always felt like my best interests were taken care of. Marie is truly an outstanding lawyer and wish her all the best!
I'd like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to Andy Boyde for helping me with my employment issue. For someone who was in a difficult situation his knowledge and expertise helped guide me through the process. He always provided quick responses and was readily available to provide expert advice whenever I needed it. I was impressed with the knowledge and professionalism shown and would recommend him if you are ever in a complicated employment situation.
Emma Cartlidge (Employment Solicitor) and the Team were absolutely fantastic to work with. Clear communication/informative. She got the job done to an exceptional standard and was very quick about it. Thank you so much, you were amazing! 🙂
Sarah Manning has been fantastic with our family law matter. She is very good and professional with a very quick response time.
Sarah has put my mind at ease on many occasions, given ongoing support and is attentive to special needs too.
I recommend her services to everyone as she puts her heart into it for you.
Consilia were fantastic helping me deal with a redundancy issue. They were helpful and professional. Really put my mind at ease knowing I had their help
Working with Andy Boyde was just what I needed, a person who could respond quickly, professionally and get to the crooks of the matter and explain in plain English what it all meant and what we needed to do.
Great experience and customer service just when you need.
I would highly recommend Andy and Consilia to anyone.
Superb professional, supportive & friendly service by Laura and her colleagues.
Their responses to both emails and telephone calls were quick and precise.
I could and not of asked for a better service during a very difficult period, and would not hesitate to use again.
Thanks Laura and team at Consilia Legal. Great service and such a pragmatic and human approach to the legal system. Fitted really well with my personal values. Truly aimed at being conciliatory rather than adversarial.
If you need expert, pragmatic, timely employment law advice that you can trust then I highly recommend Marie Walsh and her team. When faced with a tricky issue full of 'shades of grey', Marie guided us through the process, step-by-step providing both an approach and letter templates. She was with us every step of the way, checking with us after every meeting, and discussing the next step. Alongside this, vitally for us, she understood our values and our commitment to not only complying with law, but also doing what's 'fair' and 'right' for all parties. Highly recommended.
What an excellent service and experience Sarah Mannings at Consillia delivers to both personal and professional clients.
I have been able to send my own clients to Sarah with the peace of mind that they will receive a quality service that is also cost effective. Feedback from them has been that aside from the points mentioned, she is able to 'talk to me clients as person and takes a genuine interest in my circumstances to offer the best solution'.
If you are needing a friendly, reasonable and professional service then Sarah is the person to speak to!
When I found myself requiring legal advice for an employment issue Victoria was definitely the best choice. Victoria was very responsive extremely professional and explained the process to me in a clear and easy to understand manner. She made what could have been a stressful situation an easy and straight forward process. Highly recommend!
Sarah Manning was great - really efficient and supportive. I would recommend her to anyone.
Cannot recommend this company enough. Seriously on the ball, ring you back when they say they will and completely exceed expectations. Thank you Andy and all at Consilia.
Brilliant solicitors firm. This is my first time using a solicitors and Emma really made me feel at ease with her attentiveness and professionalism. She kept me informed at every step of the way. I don't hope to have any legal issues in the future but if I do, these guys are first people I will call. Thank you Emma and Consilia.
Consilia have done a good job of mediating the discussions across family and financial matters. Quick responses, good communication and a helpful/flexible approach.
I found Consilia on LinkedIn when having trouble with own ET. Victoria was my assigned solicitor and she was amazing. She guided me, lobbied on my behalf and gave me emotional support when I was feeling angry, upset or defeated. She gave me a metaphorical hand to hold and guided me through the bureaucracy.
I would highly recommend Consilia Legal. Their staff are professionals with compassion and understanding. I can honestly say, I would not be heading to ET without them.
Thank you so much!
Marie, Andy, Victoria and Emma were exceptional in their help, advice and support – all done with a non-nonsense super friendly approach. Really took the stress out of a difficult corporate employment process. I felt safe and confident in their capable hands, recommending them highly.
Andy Boyde was very helpful helping me sort out my employment issue.
I recently had occasion to require the services of an employment lawyer and was recommended to this firm by a professional colleague. I have dealt with many lawyers around the world in the most complex business transactions and personally. I can honestly say I have never received the level of consideration and service from any other legal firm to match that of Consilia Legal. From the moment they picked up the phone to my initial call to the matter being finalised in record quick time; their service and attention to detail was never less than exemplary. Their legal advice was also spot on. It is extraordinary to see this level of service across every aspect of a business and it is a huge credit to Marie Walsh and her team (especially Emma Cartlidge) that they are all able to make their clients feel so welcome and so cared for. I would heartily recommend them to anyone.
Consilia Legal have been a huge part of my toolkit this year... they have been so proactive with their updates - which are written in easy/quick to read updates - sent out at precisely the right time - when everyone needs it the most. Their energy and positivity throughout has been inspiring - we are truly grateful. Thank you all.
Marie and her staff have been very helpful. Marie had assisted me previously with an employment law issues so I had no hesitation in engaging her again. She helped me through an unpleasant job related matter when I was at a low ebb and feeling unable to fight my own corner. As before Marie gave sound, straight forward advice and took over the handling of communication with my employer until the matter was resolved. When I had to take action myself Marie was always there to consult if I was worried about something. I would thoroughly recommend Consilia Legal to anyone.
When my autistic son was suspended from work, we felt he had been treated unfairly in the workplace because of his disability and needed help and advice from a specialist employment lawyer. Consilia Legal were highly recommended to me.
I dealt with both Marie and Vicky and I can honestly say they were both amazing. They were both very professional and caring.
Initially, I was worried that I would find speaking to a solicitor confusing and complicated but they simplified things so I was able to gain a better understanding of employment law.
Vicky then delt with my son’s case and I felt we built a very good relationship. She was so easy to talk to and I found her very approachable, which made me feel very comfortable.
Because of my son’s disability, our aim was to seek a quick and satisfactory resolution rather than a lengthy, damaging conflict. Vicky was always there to advise me on the best course of action to resolve the dispute as quickly as possible and to help us achieve a positive outcome (which we did).
Thank you Vicky for all your help.
Marie and her team are brilliant. They are always professional whilst being personable and great fun to work with. Their updates during the Coronavirus Pandemic have been a lifesaver. Would definitely recommend!
Finding good legal advice and an empathetic approach is essential when the situation you are dealing with is emotionally fraught. I couldn't have asked for more from Consolia. Listened carefully, provided options and strategies and made me feel they were looking after my interests not their own. Quick, efficient and effective communications. No hesitation recommending Andy and the team in Leeds.
Laura Clapton has been brilliant and very professional through the Mediation process. I highly recommend her.
