Barry.Nilsson. launches family law mediation service

Tuesday 7 September 2021

Barry.Nilsson. has announced that it will now offer mediation services as part of its national family law practice to help families in Brisbane and Sydney resolve disputes without the need for litigation.

The firm can now mediate legal disputes that arise at the end of relationships, including the division of property, parenting arrangements and spousal support.

Barry.Nilsson. Chief Executive Officer, Graeme Walsh, said the decision to expand its family law offering grew from a desire for the firm to provide more options for parties to address challenging family law disputes.

“The ongoing success of our family law practice reflects the high quality of our legal expertise and our recognised client-focused service,” said Mr Walsh.

“We know that mediation is a powerful and cost-effective tool that allows parties to remain in control and have ownership in the outcome.

“Our nationally-accredited mediators - James Steel, Melanie Rubin, Allison Caputo, and Kirstie Colls - are senior practitioners with outstanding reputations as family lawyers. They will now join Head of Family, Geoff Sinclair, in providing mediation services from our Brisbane and Sydney offices.

“Together their extensive knowledge and expertise provides an excellent foundation for our mediation service.”

Barry.Nilsson. has a long, proud history in family law, having specialised in this discipline since opening its doors in 1963. With family law offices in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, the firm works flexibly with clients across Australia and internationally.

“Our family lawyers and mediators take a strategic approach to all matters, including dispute resolution,” said Mr Walsh.

“We are pleased that our mediators will now be available to use their extensive family law skills to provide mediation services to clients outside our firm.”

Barry.Nilsson. is a multi-award-winning national firm with a reputation for leadership in the areas of Insurance & Health and Family Law & Estate Planning.

Barry.Nilsson.’s Family Law team has received a raft of technical and individual accolades in the prestigious Doyle’s Guide and Best Lawyers, including First Tier Family & Divorce Law Firm in Brisbane and Australia, Lawyer of the Year for Family Law and Family Law Mediation, and Family Law Rising Star to name a few.
