Lesley Baker - Mediator and Manager
Lesley trained as a family lawyer and qualified in 1991. She practiced in the Thames Valley and was Head of the Family Department for a local firm until that department was closed in 2000. She worked in all areas of family law including in domestic violence, when she was on the local Domestic Violence Forum and had strong links with the local Refuges. Later she moved on to work on high value financial cases and was the expert in the firm at the time for the newly formed Child Support Agency calculations.
In 2000 Lesley set up Lambda Mediation and has been practicing as a full time mediator since then. She is a member of the College of Mediators https://www.collegeofmediators.co.uk/ and is Family Mediation Council accredited https://www.familymediationcouncil.org.uk/, including in Child Inclusive Mediation. Lesley is a professional supervisor to a number of other mediators of varying experience and has also trained in Civil and Commercial Mediation.
In late 2019 Lesley moved her practice to the Welshpool area in Powys, although while most mediation work is being conducted by video conferencing, she continues to work with couples around the country and indeed abroad.
