Brian Neill


It is with great sadness that Chambers has learnt of the death on Christmas Eve at the age of 94 of the Rt Hon Sir Brian Neill. Brian Neill was commissioned into the Rifle Brigade and fought in the Normandy campaign in 1944/45. He was called to the Bar in 1949 and was a member of Chambers until 1978. He took Silk in 1968. He was appointed a Judge in the Queen’s Bench Division in 1978, a Judge of the Commercial and Admiralty Courts in 1980 and of the Employment Appeal Tribunal in 1981. He became Judge in charge of the Commercial List in 1983. He was appointed a Lord Justice of Appeal in January 1985 and a member of the Privy Council in February 1985. He retired from the Court of Appeal in September 1996 and became a Judge of the Court of Appeal for Gibraltar in 1997. His wife, Sally, predeceased him and he is survived by his three sons, Andrew, Michael and Richard, their wives, and his eight grandchildren to whom we send our deepest condolences.  There will be a memorial service in London in the spring.
