Simon Draycott Q.C. passed away on the afternoon of Saturday 22nd August 2015.
Simon was our head of chambers from 2006 until his death. He was a first-rate criminal barrister who in Silk was one of the foremost serious fraud practitioners in the country both as a prosecutor and defending.
An incisive advocate, he combined natural charm with a forensic mind. He was liked enormously and held in high esteem by both friends and colleagues.
Simon's forward thinking leadership ensured the growth and development of 5 St Andrew's Hill. We have him to thank for our continued success and we will miss him terribly.
His legacy will live on as 5 St Andrew's Hill and its individual members continue to thrive.
