Mark Green joins Wilkinson Woodward

West Yorkshire law firm Wilkinson Woodward has recruited family lawyer and mediator Mark Green.

Green brings with him more than two decades of experience in handling all aspects of relationship breakdown, including finance, property and arrangements for children.

After studying law in Leeds in the 1980s, Green’s legal career began as an articled clerk with Holmfirth-based Heap, Marshall and Heeley.

He qualified as a solicitor in 1987 and has specialised in family law for the past 25 years.

Green is a trained collaborative solicitor and an accredited family mediator and will be based at Wilkinson Woodward’s offices in Brighouse. The firm has further offices in Halifax and Huddersfield.

Commercial and property law specialist Andrew Crabtree celebrated 30 years at Wilkinson Woodward in December 2017.

The firm itself has been in business for more than 130 years.

The practice was founded in 1886 by local solicitor Robert Wilkinson. He was succeeded in May 1936 by Gordon Woodward, who was joined two months later by Harry Ludlam, when the name Wilkinson Woodward & Ludlam was adopted. Ludlam went on to become mayor of Halifax and was a highly respected and well-known figure in the town.

Wilkinson Woodward is supporting the Concert for the Young at Heart, which takes place at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax on 20 March.
