Wilkinson Woodward celebrates first 1000 days in Brighouse

One of Calderdale’s best known legal practices is celebrating its first 1000 days of trading in Brighouse.

Wilkinson Woodward Bearders has been trading from offices in King Street since the merger of Wilkinson Woodward and Bearders Solicitors on 1 October 2013.

To meet the modern day legal needs of the town, the growing law firm has expanded the Brighouse practice, refurbishing the old Bearders premises and attracting a team of experienced lawyers with specialisms ranging from conveyancing, employment law, notary work, commercial law, personal injury, family law and mediation, will, trusts and estates.

Wilkinson Woodward employs eight staff at the Brighouse office and a further eighty people at its two other offices in Halifax and Huddersfield.

Managing director Maureen Cawthorn said that the Bearder name had been well known in Brighouse for almost a century.

“We’re delighted to be marking our first 1000 days of trading as Wilkinson Woodward Bearders,” she said.

“We look forward to serving the people and businesses of Brighouse for many more years to come.”
