It is with regret that we report the very sad news that Stanley Brodie QC died on 3 May, 2022.

Mr. Brodie was Blackstone Chambers’ most senior member, having been called to the Bar in 1954 and taking silk in 1975. A member of Chambers for over half a century, he was a well-known figure at the Bar for over 60 years.

Mr Brodie was appointed Bencher of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple in 1983. He was elected Reader of the Inner Temple in 1999 and Treasurer for 2000. Mr Brodie was a Recorder of the Crown Court for 13 years, during which time he also served as a Deputy Official Referee (now known as a Judge of the Technology and Construction Court). During his time in junior practice, and over 40 years as a Queen's Counsel, he had a wide commercial and financial practice covering a number of areas including property finance and banking as well as lotteries and gaming law. 

Members of Chambers and staff as well as many at the Bar will have fond memories of him and he will be much missed.
