Margaret Young

Litigation Consultant & Mediator

Margaret is an experienced litigation solicitor by profession.  She has worked for the Law Society in the administration of Legal Aid, for a top one-hundred law firm and after a career break to raise a family latterly set up her own law firm in Stroud which was Lexcel, CQS and IIP accredited and which was ultimately sold to a top 200 law firm.

Margaret over the years has become increasingly concerned about people’s ability to access justice at a reasonable rate.  Further she has become increasing concerned not only by the costs and risks of litigation but also by the stress and misery that it inevitably causes.  Accordingly, she became accredited as a civil and commercial mediator in 2001 with Regents College (now University).

Margaret has been involved in many mediations in a range of disputes including those relating to inheritance, contract, negligence and disputes within the community for a local Council.

Margaret came to Cotswold Barristers as it was recognised that some clients needed more assistance with the Direct Access way of working, and so works alongside the barristers under their supervision to facilitate the smooth running of cases as and when such input is needed.

Margaret is now joining the mediation team at Chambers which offer mediation services at a sensible cost.
