Ian Fisher retires after over half a century with Ware & Kay

Ian Fisher has retired after a distinguished service of over 50 years with leading law firm Ware & Kay, with offices in York, Wetherby and Malton. Ian joined the Wills & Probate department when the firm was known as Newbald Kay & Sons on 7th July 1969 at its office in Lendal, York and remained in this department until his retirement, becoming Ware & Kay’s longest serving employee.

Throughout his career, Ian has worked tirelessly for his clients and assisted many generations of families. He is well respected and hugely knowledgeable in the field of Wills & Probate, Estate Administration, Inheritance Tax Planning and later life care through the use of Lasting Powers of Attorney.

Ian Fisher commented:

“Ware & Kay has been a significant factor throughout my life. When I first started work secretaries took dictation using shorthand and documents were prepared on manual typewriters. Technology has changed and improved the way things are done but one thing that has not changed is the personal way Ware & Kay assists our clients. I am confident that I leave the firm in great shape and ideally poised to continue to take on the challenges of the forthcoming years, decades and beyond, with excellent staff and commitment to absolute client focus. I now look forward to enjoying my retirement with friends and family.”

Ware & Kay’s Senior Director Peter Kay said: “On behalf of the Directors and all the staff at the firm, I would like to thank Ian for his hard work, diligence and dedication over his 50 years. Ian is well known and respected in the legal community and we shall all miss him but wish him a long and happy retirement to enjoy quality time with his family”
