About Ellen Lane

Ellen Lane was a social worker in inner London for 14 years before retraining and qualifying as a solicitor in 1998.

Specialising in family law, she then worked for over 15 years for law firms in London and the south-east, acting for clients in divorce and financial applications, private and public law children disputes and domestic violence cases.

Ellen joined the SELFMB in 2012 after training as a mediator with National Family Mediation.
She is FMC accredited and able in suitable cases to consult directly with the children of parents going through mediation. Ellen has a particular interest in mediating inter-generational disputes within families.

Ellen holds degrees from London University in French and Social Work and is a member of the College of Mediators and the Law Society.
She sings alto in her local church choir (details of their next concert always available on request) and is a tenaciously loyal supporter of Munster RFC.

COVID-19 & Appointments

In light of recent Coronavirus developments SELFMB are offering clients the opportunity to book a MIAM appointment by Zoom, as an alternative to a face-to-face meeting, or to change an existing MIAM appointment to a Zoom appointment. Zoom is a video meeting App which you can download for free onto your phone/laptop or other device. Find out more here.

In some cases we will also be offering mediations by Zoom. We would usually conduct mediations in person, however mediation by video meeting is a recognised approach, approved by the FMC (Family Mediation Council). With the increased risk of Coronavirus we are looking at how we can continue to provide services to clients whilst reducing the risk to clients and staff.

Please call on 020 8315 7460 if you have any questions or would like to arrange an appointment or request to change an appointment to Zoom.
