Alexander Stewart

Hogarth Chambers is sad to announce the death of Alexander Stewart, known to his colleagues in Chambers as Jo. Having studied at McGill (Canada) and Oxford Universities, Jo was called to the Bar in 1975. After working for a law firm and for a bank in Canada, he joined 5 New Square in 1988 and built up a particular expertise in corporate and insolvency law.  Despite a very serious illness in the early 2000s, Jo remained in practice and retained the sense of humour and fun for which his colleagues will always remember him. He will be missed.

Chambers’ thoughts are with Jo’s wife, Ros and his family at this difficult time.
