Marcia’s accreditations include Family Mediation and she is a qualified child consultant practitioner. Her associations include the Professional Mediators Association and Resolution.

Applying an approach, founded in both empathy and pragmatism, Marcia has successfully mediated a wide range of diverse disputes, both in and out of the workplace and at least a glimmer of a smile, maybe, on the faces of each participant at the close of the day is what makes her work so rewarding for all involved.  Marcia’s mediations are a platform to build successful outcomes for everyone concerned.


Michael Lister

Michael is  the founder and  former managing partner of 25 years at Myers Lister Price solicitors. 

As a commercial litigator in practice , his approach to litigation has always been to litigate aggressively, but only   with a view to the earliest possible mediated settlement. 

As a lifelong advocate for Mediation , Michael helped found Marcia Mediation and practices in both Family and workplace mediators.

As a family mediator Michael specialises in both financial cases,  where he helps the parties focus on fair solutions to the value and division of  assets including businesses and commercial property,  and children cases,  where he helps separating couples focus on their future roles as co-parents.

As a workplace mediator he calls on his  experience as owner of a law firm to work  with everyone involved to identify the common interest and move forward with a positive outlook.
