It is with great sadness that the Board, Partners (past and present) and Colleagues of W.K. Webster learned on Monday of the untimely passing of Simon Kverndal QC. Simon was a bastion of the Marine Community in London and a good friend to many of us not only because of his roles as a leading Advocate and Arbitrator but also because of the close ties between his family and Webster’s. His father Ole Sig retired as our Senior Partner in 1992 whilst his grandfather Thorbjorn joined us around 100 years ago and was instrumental in the close relationship we still enjoy with the Scandinavian market. Simon's urbane wit, charm and sharp incisive knowledge will be sorely missed by all who knew him and our thoughts are with all of his family at this very difficult time.
