It is with great sadness that we
have to announce that Paul Anthony, one of our longest serving solicitors, has
passed away after a long illness.
Paul was well known to many in the area, as he had practised in Kendal for over 50 years with many long lasting and loyal clients. He grew up in Grasmere, attending school in Ambleside, and lived in the Lakes for most of his life. Paul specialised since the 1980s in criminal law, alongside working with residential conveyancing and private clients. He became a senior partner in the practice of Greenwood Kyle in Kendal, which then merged with Thomson Hayton Winkley in 2006.
Paul was known for the thoroughness of his work and invariably went the extra mile in looking after the interests of clients.
Very much a family man, with two daughters and a number of grandchildren, in his spare time Paul enjoyed climbing and walking, particularly in the North East Highlands of Scotland where he had a small working hill farm. He was also a very skilled and experienced sailor and for many years he enjoyed sailing his own yachts.
Paul was a highly respected member of this firm and will be very much missed by colleagues and clients alike, and our heartfelt sympathies go out to his family.
