Theo Savvides (1968-2017)


It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely death of our friend and partner, Theo Savvides, who tragically died in a cycling accident in France on 10 July.

Theo joined us only three years ago, but in that short time he made an enormous and enduring contribution to this firm. With his boundless energy and unwaveringly positive outlook, Theo took everything in his stride and embraced any and all challenges that came before him.

Theo was one of our Joint Managing Partners at the time of his death, and in that role he enjoyed the absolute trust and confidence of his partners and colleagues.  His unshakable integrity and commitment to the firm and its values made him an obvious choice for the job, and he undertook it with the enthusiasm, wisdom and thoughtfulness that underpinned his great professional success as a lawyer.

In his daily work, Theo was respected and admired not only for his considerable talents, but also for his kindness, patience and willingness to listen to others. Theo strove tirelessly to be the best that he could be – as a lawyer, partner, manager and friend - and in doing so he enriched the lives of all those around him.

We would like to thank the many clients and friends of Theo and the firm who have made contact with us to pass on their condolences, and to share their own memories of Theo. We know that Theo made a lasting impression on all those with whom he worked and interacted, that he made friends and brought laughter wherever he went, and that he will be dearly missed by all.
