      It is with great sadness we announce that Graham Underwood, Founding Partner, passed away on Wednesday 30 December 2020.

      Having fought lung cancer for nearly two years, Graham unfortunately contracted COVID-19 and was admitted to hospital on Christmas Day. He sadly passed away in hospital at 8.40am on Wednesday 30 December.

      Graham’s battle against his cancer was truly inspirational; he never complained and dealt with every development with great determination and positivity.

      We will all sorely miss Graham’s vision, experience and friendship. Our thoughts are with his wife, Deirdre, three daughters, and family.
