It is with very deep sadness that Westgate Chambers has to announce the death of Piers Reed. He died on Wednesday 31st August 2022 after a long illness, with has family around him.
When Piers suffered serious ill-health last year he permanently stepped away from his practice at the Bar, but remained in regular contact with Chambers and the local Bar.
Piers requested a family-only funeral. In due course Westgate will be arranging an event to celebrate his life.
As a Bencher of Lincoln’s Inn, Piers’ death was marked on Friday by the lowering of the flag to half-mast and the ringing of the Inn’s bell at lunchtime.
