Fiona Ward, a private client solicitor, works for Thomson Hayton Winkley at their Windermere office, having previously worked for Milne Moser Solicitors and JWK Solicitors after qualifying in 2010. Fiona is a local girl who returned to live in the area with her family in 2003 following her father’s diagnosis of inoperable brain cancer.
Previously, Fiona graduated with a degree in child psychology from the University of Warwick and then worked for several years for Andersen Consulting (now Accenture). With the arrival of two children there followed several management roles in the charity and retail sectors. In 2004 Fiona decided to retrain as a solicitor and now advises elderly clients and their families. Her children have both flown the nest to universities at opposite ends of the country, so she now has more time to go to cinema and theatre with her husband John, an IT consultant.
