Eileen Bye leaves the firm on 20 April 2018. She has been a stalwart fighter for the rights of her clients over several decades, championing the causes of some of the most vulnerable and highlighting injustices over a lengthy and distinguished career.

Many felt the warmth of her human spirit, few felt the wrath, but when they did – they knew about it.

Within the hectic nature of legal practice and deadlines and demands from clients, courts and third parties, for the most part it has been a pleasure, but without doubt, it has always been an honour.
