It is with great sadness that we announce that Nigel Jones, our Senior Clerk, died on 26 November 2020.
Nigel was our Senior Clerk for over 18 years. He joined Chambers in 2002, and brought with him his vision of how a modern set of Chambers should be run, together with the skill and enthusiasm to put this into practice. Nigel was hugely respected by all who worked with him, and was regarded as a role model in the wider clerking world. For our barristers, he was a constant source of support and drive. For our clerks and staff, a wonderful boss and mentor. For our clients, a trusted pair of hands, always ready to help. We have lost not only a truly outstanding senior clerk, but also a great friend.
Nigel will be greatly missed by the members, staff and clients of Pump Court Tax Chambers. He leaves behind him a legacy of which he should be proud.
At this most difficult time, our thoughts are with Nigel’s family, including his wife, children, mother and sister. We will be happy to receive and pass on messages of condolence.
