Well known solicitor Roger Boreham has retired after over 41 years in the legal profession.

The 68-year-old who has built up a reputation for his knowledge in wills and probate with Ware and Kay at offices in York and Wetherby, marked the occasion with a celebration with family, friends, colleagues and clients at Wetherby Golf Club.

Roger said: “I feel that the time is right to move on to the next phase of my life and explore the benefits of retirement.

“I have enjoyed forming business relationships and appreciate the trust clients have put in me and my firm.

“While I am still enjoying working, I am conscious that there are a lot of fresh-minded and intelligent people at Ware & Kay to whom I should pass the baton and let them run on.

“In Wetherby, Catherine Jennings and Bella Usher have been working with me and are both very experienced and sensitive to client’s wishes. At our York office Ian Fisher, Clare Presley and Sian Foster have many years of experience between them.

“I will be sad to see an end to my work in Wetherby and York. I am consoled, however, that those I have served in the past will be well served in the future.”

London born and with a science degree from Nottingham University, Roger worked initially for the Inland Revenue and then started in the legal profession in 1974.

Roger has had experience in all sizes of legal firms and joined Ware & Kay in 1999 as a Consultant and then joined the partnership in 2002.

Roger said he plans to enjoy his life with his wife and children as well as concentrate on his hobbies which include music, walking, gardening and art.

Michael Peach, Director at Ware & Kay, Wetherby and immediate Past President of the Yorkshire Law Society said: “He will be greatly missed especially in the Wetherby office where he was based.”
