Jemma Thomas


family mediator - conflict resolution

Jemma qualified as a solicitor in 2002 and has exclusively specialised in family law throughout her 20 year career. Jemma read law at Cambridge University and was an associate solicitor for four years at Withers LLP, a long established top-ranked law firm. Jemma worked on a varied case load including complex financial matters, often with international elements, private children law issues and disputes between cohabitants. In 2010 Jemma took on the role of Knowledge Lawyer for the entire family team at Withers, which requires an in-depth understanding of family law and an ability to share that knowledge in an accessible way. Jemma decided to train as a mediator so that she could combine her knowledge of the law with a desire to help people find solutions that work for them. Jemma has been described by colleagues as empathic and practical.
