We are sad to report the death of former head of chambers, Sir Godfray Le Quesne QC. He died peacefully at home.
Sir Godfray was called to the bar in 1947 and took silk in 1962. His first reported case was in the Privy Council an Appeal from the Supreme Court of Palestine. His last reported case before retiring was also in the Privy Council some 58 years later in 2006, an Appeal from Trinidad and Tobago.
Sir Godfray was a Judge and Vice-President of the Courts of Appeal of Jersey and Guernsey from 1964 - 1997. He was Chairman of the Monopolies and Mergers Commission from 1975 - 1987. He became a bencher of The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple in 1969 and in 1989 was its Treasurer.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
There will be a memorial service in Temple Church in early 2014 details of which will follow in due course.
If you require any further details, please contact James Donovan (Senior Clerk).
