      We establish a mixed convex-Lipschitz mean value inequality from which recent results of Clarke and Ledyaev and of Lewis and Ralph follow naturally. We also provide various refinements and extensions. Finally, we answer affirmatively several open questions on the existence of ``squeeze'' theorems for a finite number of Lipschitz functions.
