Halifax solicitor marks 25 years at Wilkinson Woodward

Published 7th Apr 2015 by Emma Sinfield

Employment Law specialist Jon Dyson is celebrating notching up twenty five years of service at Halifax legal practice Wilkinson Woodward.

After graduating from the University of Durham in 1981, Jon began his legal career at Hall & Norton in Huddersfield.

In March 1990 he joined Halifax-based member Wilkinson Woodward, initially handling a mix of legal casework. With a keen interest in employment law issues, by the mid-nineties Jon had set up the firm’s employment law department and has specialised in employment law matters for the past twenty years.

In 1992 Jon became a partner and was appointed as a director when the practice incorporated following a merger with Huddersfield based Norcliffe & Co in 2012.

Jon’s many career highlights include a successful sex discrimination case against BT in which an employee was awarded £293,000.

Jon, 55, deals with all aspects of employment law including negotiating severance packages on behalf of employees, disputes relating to shareholders rights, unfair prejudice and confidential information. He has a particular interest and expertise in discrimination cases. He also has overall responsibility for marketing at Wilkinson Woodward. 

Managing Director Maureen Cawthorn commented: "Jon lends a wealth of experience in employment law matters to the Wilkinson Woodward team - his reputation in handling issues of discrimination has been built over many years of successful cases. We’re delighted to be marking his twenty-fifth year at Wilkinson Woodward."
