It is with great sadness that the Partnership announces the sudden passing of Sandra Judith Griffiths, our much loved Office Manager. Sandra had been with the firm over 40 years, starting as search clerk and then secretary/legal executive to Sir Michael Friedlander. As well as assisting Sir Michael with his busy leasing practice, Sandra had run the firm for a number of decades with skill, energy and enthusiasm. She had trained countless law clerks and secretaries, many of whom were present at her large funeral last month. One of the firm’s litigation partners delivered a eulogy on behalf of the Partnership and staff, a transcript of which is here (.pdf).
Sandra will always hold a special place in our hearts and her unique contribution to the office will be sorely missed.
Rest in peace.
