Richard Locke from Sharratts: "I am devastated to have to tell you of the death of my dear friend, Gillian Metcalf. Gill died yesterday in an accident whilst on holiday in Brazil. As you will imagine this news has hit us all very hard.
Gill was a marvellous lawyer, a generous friend and most of all a loving wife and devoted mother to her two girls. Gill would have insisted that, in these circumstances, the firm carried on seamlessly and regardlessly. We will, but please bear with us during this very tragic time.
I know, having so many friends in the sector, that there will be questions and kind condolences. Please do not hesitate to contact me, Nick or Sarah. We have all lost a very special person.
