With immense sadness we share the tragic news of the death of John Jones QC.


John was a good friend, great colleague and a brilliant and creative lawyer.


John was admired and appreciated for his amazing sense of humour, his professionalism and his deep commitment to justice and the rule of law.


His death is a huge loss for all of us in Chambers, for the British and International legal profession but mostly for his family to whom we offer our sincerest and deepest condolences.


Messages of support can be sent to and cards or letters can be sent to Chambers.  These will be forwarded to John’s family, who will also be the beneficiaries of a fund we have set up in his memory.  Donations can be made to the Doughty Street Chambers John Jones QC Memorial Fund (Sort Code 20-77-67 and Account Number 93017451).


Further information, as well as details on funeral arrangements, will be posted on this page as and when they become available.
