Vivien Riddell

Vivien Riddell specialises exclusively in family law matters and has extensive experience helping clients manage conflict following separation. She understands that separation is very often a stressful experience and that clients may be anxious about their future.

Vivien is trained in Collaborative Law and is also a trained mediator and member of CALM (Comprehensive Accredited Lawyer Mediators) Scotland. Mediation is a constructive process that allows parties the opportunity for discussion and to explore settlement options. Those who reach agreement through mediation generally report feeling more satisfied with the outcome.

She has a particular interest in supporting clients through negotiations with the aim of achieving an outcome tailored to suit their needs. Vivien works with clients to identify their individual requirements, looking particularly at how the impact of separation affects any children of the relationship.

Her approach is firmly based on encouraging communication which she sees as key to fostering good relations.

I wanted to let you know I’ve heard from our client that she and her spouse have reached preliminary agreement on certain matters with your help and are collecting further information. I’m so grateful to you for dealing with this and our client said that you were warm, welcoming, understanding and professional and was so pleased with the recommendation.
