Julian had a long career in the legal profession spanning several decades. Julian was formerly a Professor of Law at the University of Manchester. He was appointed a Law Commissioner in 1984 before becoming the Pensions Ombudsman.

Remembering Julian, Rodney Austin said: “I am truly sorry to hear about Julian's passing. Julian was always such a lovely, pleasant and witty person to be around.”

Jacqueline Dyson said: “Julian was an outstanding property lawyer. In addition, he was interesting, good fun and always had a twinkle in his eye.”

Our thoughts are with Lady Hale and her family during this difficult time.
