With mediation becoming an ever more popular choice for separating couples, Setfords are very pleased to welcome aboard a solicitor with extensive experience helping families reach amicable agreements.

Robyn Allardice-Bourne is a family lawyer and accredited family mediator and is qualified to conduct initial assessment meetings for mediation, known as MIAMs.

Robyn, who joins Setfords from Spring Law, where she was a partner and Head of Mediation, is a member of the Law Society Family Panel and sits on the Family Section Advisory Group.

Building on a business and commercial background, Robyn is also a senate committee member of the Genesis Initiative, formed to improve the quality of the debate on SMEs in the UK and Europe by creating economic reform, driven by SMEs and supported by parliamentarians. Robyn’s commercial roles include being Chief of Corporate Development at Code First: Girls and the founder of the International Mediation and Arbitration Network Ltd.
