It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Murray Pickering QC on 11 May 2022 whilst holidaying in Bruges.
Murray was a highly respected member of Chambers since 1969. He had an encyclopaedic knowledge of company law and latterly focussed his attention on major high court litigation and international commercial arbitration, acting both as counsel and as an arbitrator.
His memory is cherished by colleagues, employees and peers for his kindness, generosity, sense of humour and golfing prowess. He was regarded fondly as a highly admirable mentor and leader, especially to his junior peers.
The thoughts of all at Twenty Essex are with Murray’s loved ones.
