We are sorry to share the sad news that Bill Nash, who many will know passed away on Monday 27th December.

He was well known across London’s Magistrates’ Courts and Crown Courts as a fearless advocate always happy to offer his advice and counsel to a junior lawyers.

Sadly for Bill his aim of retiring in October 2021 after the remarkable achievement of completing his 50th practicing certificate was undermined by the sudden and short illness over the summer.

We were fortunate to gather on zoom with Bill and other colleagues two months ago to toast his career upon his retirement and share our memories with him . Characteristically on this occasion held court with a selection of anecdotes from his colorful career.

He will be missed by colleagues, clients, friends and his two children.
