Passing of Michael Wood and Alison Graham-Wells

January 3, 2019

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of two valued members of Exchange Chambers, Michael Wood and one of our Door Tenants, Alison Graham-Wells.

Called to the Bar in 1989, Michael had a successful career as a commercial practitioner, and was notably the first member of the Commercial team at Exchange Chambers back in 1991. He was a talented and popular barrister who will be remembered fondly by those who knew him.

Alison, formerly a Senior Government Lawyer, was called to the Bar in 1992 and joined Exchange Chambers in 2009. In 2015, Alison transferred to St John’s Chambers in Bristol to be closer to her family, but kept her links with Chambers by taking a Door Tenancy. She was a highly regarded commercial and chancery barrister who specialised in taxation. Alison had been battling cancer very bravely for many years.

Our deepest thoughts and condolences are with both family and friends of Michael and Alison at this terrible time.
