Richard Davies QC

I was shocked to hear today of the death of one of the very best barristers in the country, Richard Davies QC, who tragically passed away last week. Described by Chambers UK as "intellectually brilliant" he had the preeminent reputation in the conduct of sports litigation as well as being Head of Chambers at 39 Essex Street. I met Richard when he presented a webinar on sports personal injury cases in June along with fellow sports law specialist and barrister Jonathan Bellamy. I was struck not only by his intellect which shone out but also by his understated, warm and down to earth manner. A really tragic loss. A condolence book can be found on the 39 Essex Street website at http://www.39essex.co.uk/.
