About Us

Law South is a grouping of 12 major law firms in the South of England. It was formed in 1988.

Our member firms recognise the need for confidence in the expertise of any mediator among their number who might be appointed. That confidence comes from each firm having a strong and well- regarded litigation practice, a record of success in resolving disputes, and a sound reputation in terms of culture, training and professional dealings with all those who use their services. Drawing on that experience, Law South Mediators are able to settle disputes in a way which is not only user-friendly and straightforward, but also quicker and far less costly than traditional litigation channels.
