Simon Draycott Q.C. (In Memoriam)

Year of Call: 1977

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.
