Robin Dicker QC
It is with profound sadness that Chambers announces that our great friend and colleague Robin Dicker QC passed away peacefully in the arms of his family late last Friday night.
Robin joined us in 1986, from which time he has been a central and valued member of Chambers. His rise to the top of the profession was meteoric. Having arrived at the very pinnacle, he stayed there with seeming Olympian ease for decades, his calm and assured presence masking his enormous industry and dedication, until struck down by illness earlier this summer.
Over the last 35 years, Robin’s contribution to the law he loved so much, especially restructuring and insolvency law as well as to financial law more generally, to the everyday life and standing of South Square, and to the lives and progress of others, has been truly inspirational. We are immensely grateful for all that he did.
The untimely passing of this calm, kind, carefully-spoken, dry-humoured, brilliant man has taken a great lawyer and good friend from our midst. This loss is, and will long continue to be, keenly felt by us all. We will remember him with enormous admiration, affection and gratitude.
Our thoughts and sympathies are with Lindsay and Jacob and other members of Robin’s family at this sad time, and we send them our heartfelt condolences.
