In recent months, Elliot Mather have experienced exponential growth across the firm, and are pleased to announce the promotion of Senior Associate Solicitors Felicity Coats, Diane Gunn and Daniel Lindon to LLP Member status.

Felicity is a highly experienced Criminal Defence Solicitor and has been with the firm since 2008. She has been instrumental in establishing a crime presence in Derby since they first gained a contract to do criminal work there in 2017. In that short time, Elliot Mather have built a significant presence thanks to the efforts of Felicity and her colleagues at Derby.

Speaking on her appointment as LLP Member, Felicity said: “I am thrilled to have been promoted to NDM, having worked my way up from paralegal level. I am hoping to grow the Derby team and expand the success of the department.  I am lucky to work with such an excellent team who always put their all into their work, are committed to client care, and are supportive of each other.”

Diane has a high level of expertise as a Child Care Solicitor and has been with the firm since 2017.  She is a Member of Resolution and the Law Society’s Children Panel Accreditation Scheme, meaning that she can represent children, as well as parents and other family members in care proceedings and other related proceedings. She is dedicated to the Child Care Department, not only running her own substantial case load, but being heavily involved in the training and development of staff.

Speaking on her appointment, Diane said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as LLP Member in Elliot Mather’s Child Care Department. I’m looking forward to what the future brings for the department and future successes. I feel lucky to be working within such a brilliant team who are dedicated to providing expert assistance to those going through Care Proceedings.”

Daniel joined Elliot Mather in 2021 to head up the Residential Conveyancing Team in their Nottingham office. In his relatively short time with the firm, Daniel has dealt with an unprecedented high number of referrals for residential conveyancing.  It is hoped that under Daniel’s steerage the team at Nottingham will go from strength to strength and become a key element of their strategic development in Nottingham.

Daniel said: “I am very happy, and grateful, to have accepted the offer of partnership and to be appointed as an LLP Member at Elliot Mather LLP. I am very much looking forward to what the future has to hold, and being part of the ongoing success and development of the Residential Property Department in Nottingham.”

Local law firm looks to raise awareness for family mediation week

A Chesterfield law firm is looking to highlight the benefits of family mediation during an awareness week taking place from 17th-21st January.

Family Mediation is a process in which an independent, professionally-trained mediator helps you work out arrangements for children and finances following separation.

Midlands Dove Mediation, part of Elliot Mather LLP is a specialist service offering Family Mediation on a private and Legally Aided basis. The company, which has an office in Chesterfield says it is looking to assist clients across the East Midlands. The firm’s remote working capability also allows it to offer mediation services to clients nationally.

Mediation aims to assist ex-partners in making suitable arrangements for the future, avoiding the delay, cost and added stress that the Court process can bring.

Local family mediator Elizabeth Bilton FMCA, from Midlands Dove Mediation said: “We have an experienced team of specialist and Accredited Lawyer Mediators who have expertise in resolving family disputes using the process of Family Mediation. Family Mediation is proven to be an effective and time sensitive way for each family to explore different options and work out what arrangements are best for their Family.”

Midlands Dove has produced numerous useful guides that can be accessed free-of-charge, designed to assist parties who are searching for information about Mediation Services.  These can be accessed via the company’s website, which also contains the profiles of highly experienced Mediators – Elizabeth Bilton, Jennie Byrne, and Julie Skill.

Midlands Dove Mediation is also taking part in the Ministry of Justice’s Family Mediation Voucher Scheme, which meets up to £500 of mediation costs for families if they need to discuss arrangements for children. The scheme is anticipated to run until the end of March, although vouchers are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Parties interested in finding out more about mediation can also watch a free, online event with parenting expert Sue Atkins in discussion with Sarah Manning (a Mediator accredited by the Family Mediation Council), on the morning of Wednesday 19 January. In addition, the Family Mediation Council has organised a series of free, online events for professionals who work with families. The full programme of events, and details of how to sign up, are available on the Family Mediation Council website.
