Congratulations to all of the winners and finalists of the All Ireland Mediation Competition. Rather than head to head battles the participants competed with a spirit of conciliation and negotiation at the mediations on 17th May 2019, hosted by the Institute of Professional Legal Studies (IPLS) at Queens Belfast.
Four teams from the Law Society of Ireland and four teams from IPLS took part and we are delighted Gillian Hunt, HOMS Solicitors trainee, succeeded as part of the finalist’s team. Gillian has been with the firm since 2015, currently training in her defence litigation seat, and will qualify as a solicitor in 2020.
Gillian’s team mediated a resolution for a partnership agreement dispute in the first round, and in the second competed for various parties to reconcile in an unusual dispute involving property damage and assault when a drone flew into a house!
