Boardman Clark Remembers Bradway A. Liddle, Jr.

Bradway A. Liddle, Jr., our long-time colleague, died on Thursday, September 16, 2021. Brad graduated from the UW Law School in 1964, Order of the Coif and a member of the Law Review. He clerked for two years for Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Horace Wilke and then joined Boardman, Suhr, Curry & Field (now Boardman & Clark) in 1966. Brad enjoyed an iconic career with our firm before retiring in 2014. In those nearly 50 years, Brad established himself as one of Madison’s preeminent defense attorneys—and also one of its biggest personalities. Brad earned a well-deserved reputation as a relentless and skilled trial lawyer, specializing in the area of medical malpractice defense. Never one to take himself too seriously, Brad had his own, unique sense of humor, which he freely shared with all who worked with him.

Brad had a major impact in shaping our firm. We will miss him.

In accord with Brad’s wishes, there will not be a funeral service. Instead, a visitation/celebration of life will be held at GUNDERSON FITCHBURG FUNERAL AND CREMATION CARE, 2950 Chapel Valley Road, Fitchburg, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021.
