Fiona Ward - Solicitor
Solicitor • Windermere

My parents moved to the South Lakes before my first birthday, so I consider myself to be a northerner. I was educated at the Queen Elizabeth School in Kirkby Lonsdale, and then Warwick University, gaining a BA in Developmental Psychology. After graduation I worked for the management consultancy Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) before juggling family-life with part-time work for Tesco and then a couple of national charities.

When my father became seriously ill in 2003, we relocated back to the area and after my father’s death, I decided that I would like to retrain as a solicitor. I qualified as a family lawyer in 2010 with a local firm and then branched out into the private client department, dealing with estates, wills, Court of Protection and Powers of Attorney. In 2015 I qualified as a STEP Trust and Estate Practitioner (TEP), having come top in the country in the certificate exam along the way. I was the only northerner at the Award Ceremony.

Having worked with several local firms I joined THW in 2020.

In my spare time I have the privilege of being a Trustee of St John’s Hospice, which is our local hospice. I sit on the fundraising and communications sub-committee.

I have been married since 1992 and have two children who have grown up and flown the nest to London. In my spare time I like to walk in the Lakes, and occasionally escape to London, or to Scotland, the home of my forebears.

I pride myself in being approachable and sympathetic, while providing sound legal advice in a timely and efficient way.
