Duncan Gardiner  3rd June 1969 - 1st September 2021

It is with great sadness that Morrish Solicitors announces the loss of our dear friend and Partner, Duncan Gardiner.

Duncan passed away on Wednesday 1st September following a short illness. The Morrish team are devastated by this terrible loss, which is deeply felt across the entire firm.

Duncan was a kind, unassuming and selfless man who contributed enormously to his firm, his colleagues and his clients. Quick to laugh, and generous with his time, he was for 30 years part of the bedrock of the firm. After being admitted in 1994, Duncan worked hard to build a locally and nationally recognised team of Medical Negligence Solicitors here at Morrish – he rightly felt this was his greatest professional achievement. Duncan was extremely passionate about helping people, and committed to each and every client he represented, which is what made him such a successful and well-regarded solicitor and Partner. He was unanimously and deeply admired by all of us, and his death leaves a huge void in our hearts.

At this time, our priority is to support Duncan’s family. Please hold his wife, Jen, in your thoughts.

An announcement will be made in due course as to the funeral. If you wish to be notified of the details, please provide your name and contact details to Nikki Morton [email protected]
