Iain Patterson (1967 - 2014)

18 December 2014

Iain Patterson

It is with great sadness that we announce that Iain Patterson passed away suddenly at home on Sunday 30 November 2014. Our deepest sympathies and condolences are with his family and friends.

As well as being an exemplary lawyer, Iain will be remembered as much for his personal qualities - his warm and friendly personality, calm and unflappable manner, innate sense of decency and his great sense and instinctive use of humour. He perfectly epitomised the values that we all aspire to at Browne Jacobson.

Iain was a proud family man and loved nothing more than spending his weekends and spare time with his wife, Jacqui and son, William. Iain and William closely followed the fortunes of their beloved Liverpool Football Club and regularly attended Anfield where they were season ticket holders. As a family they enjoyed regular walking and adventurous holidays and Iain was also a keen sea kayaker.

Iain graduated in law from the University of Nottingham in 1989. He qualified as a solicitor in 1992 before joining Browne Jacobsons Birmingham office in 2001 as an associate, being made up to partner two years later.

He was a highly respected and hugely popular employment law partner and, as head of the firms NHS employment team, he made an invaluable and pivotal contribution in building up the firms employment practice and developing firstly its Birmingham, and more recently its Manchester, offices.

Iains passing will be a huge loss to the firm and for all those that had the pleasure of knowing him and working with him. He will be greatly missed.
