Tony Palmer QC
It is with great regret and sorrow that Chambers announces the passing of Anthony “Tony” Palmer QC. Upon taking Silk, as was the then convention, Tony joined Chambers in London – in this case at our old address at 2 Dr. Johnson’s Buildings Temple. From there he carried on a busy and successful criminal practice appearing in cases of the greatest gravity and seriousness. Tony was a giant of a practitioner, although not of physically towering stature. He had a quick and incisive mind and produced the most devastating results for his clients. Outside court he was a charismatic and irresistible character - a raconteur, bon vibrant, a walking dynamo who lit up the room with stories and anecdotes. His friends at 2 Dr Johnson‘s Buildings, who are now at 9 Gough Square, continue to remember him with fondness and admiration. Our sympathy and best wishes go to his family.
