Sue Woolford marks 35 years at Wilkinson Woodward

This Spring our civil litigation specialist Sue Woolford marks thirty five years of service at Wilkinson Woodward. Halifax born and bred Sue joined Wilkinson Woodward & Ludlam - as it was then - in 1980, when, at the tender age of 21, she took on the role of Assistant Cashier. Three years later Sue began the process of qualifying as a chartered legal executive, combining academic qualifications with practical experience to achieve her chartered status in 1988.

Since then, Sue, 56, has deftly handled hundreds of civil disputes including commercial, landlord and tenant, probate, professional negligence and insolvency cases. Sue’s many career highlights include success in the Court of Appeal in March 2014 with a lengthy and complex case which concerned the governance of a member’s club. Sue was involved in client representation throughout most of the original proceedings and around a dozen interim hearings until the case eventually went to trial. Sue is one of our longest-serving members of staff and is the cornerstone of our Civil Department. Outside work, for many years Sue was a loyal supporter of Luddendenfoot Cricket Club, acting as secretary, chair and scorer over a fifteen year period.
