Cleaver Fulton Rankin excel at National Mediation Awards

September 29, 2014

The Professional Mediators’ Association held their annual awards ceremony in London on Thursday 25 September 2014. The ceremony was themed as ‘the mediator, the unsung hero’ aiming to award those who have promoted and raised awareness of mediation. Cleaver Fulton Rankin’s video ‘A Masterclass in Mediation’ was awarded the Member’s Choice Award at the ceremony.

Director in Cleaver Fulton Rankin’s Construction team and Head of the Procurement team, Lisa Boyd, was delighted with the result after months of hard work along with solicitor Julie-Ann McCaffrey in rolling out a mediation initiative in the office: “Our initiative aims to educate clients and promote mediation so that when faced with a mediation in the future, clients can concentrate on settling the dispute rather than worrying about the procedural aspects of the day. We are delighted with our successes at the National Mediation Awards”.

Solicitor Julie-Ann McCaffrey was also awarded runner-up in the prestigious Mediation Champion of the Year category for her efforts in promoting mediation more widely. The judges commented on Julie-Ann’s “tireless work to promote mediation in Northern Ireland, in particular but not exclusively the legal sector.”

This is the first of a number of prestigious awards for Julie-Ann who was internationally successful at the INADR Awards whilst a student Mediator and was awarded the CEDR Young Professional of the Year Award in 2012.
