Laura Brickman

It is with great sadness that chambers must report the untimely accidental death of Laura Brickman.

She was one of life’s fighters. Against parental opposition she fought to come to the bar, she then spent her life as an effective and well liked advocate. She always championed the young bar and was a great friend and mentor to the young women in chambers. Rarely seen without her Chanel lipstick, she was undoubtedly one of the most elegant barristers of her generation. That elegance came with a steely backbone, she was well respected by the judiciary and opponents alike. Recently a Judge reported to me that a mitigation she had done was outstanding, as he said, “not a word was wasted”.

I will miss her, we all will, we send our deepest condolences to Max and Victoria.
