Hugh Skillington


Hugh tragically passed away on the 19th June 2020

We will all miss his light hearted humour, open and honest approach,  as well as his willingness to help anybody with his technical knowledge.  Hugh was a gentle, honest and hardworking lawyer who had a meticulous and conscientious approach.  He was universally liked and respected throughout the firm.

Hugh was extremely experienced as a commercial law expert having joined Brearleys in 2016. He qualified in 2012 and dealt with all aspects of commercial property, business acquisitions, company law and associated aspects including partnerships, companies, alternative business structures et cetera.

Since that time he became part of the Brearleys family.

In his spare time Hugh was an experienced canoeist. He enjoyed walking, photography and the outdoors.

Hugh studied and had a particular interest in historical affairs.
