It is with great sadness that we announce that Andrew Lydiard QC, a former member of chambers who retired from the Bar due to ill health last year, died peacefully in his sleep at home on 22nd February.
Andrew joined Brick Court Chambers in 1998 having formerly been at 5 Bell Yard. As a junior he had a large aviation and insurance law practice that he took into silk in 2003, but he also always managed to find time in assisting the Bar Pro Bono Unit help those who had no other access to justice. He was appointed as a Recorder in 2011.
He will be greatly missed by his colleagues in chambers and his many friends in the profession.
