Legal and Finance: Sudden death at Shakespeares.

John Buckingham, a partner in Birmingham law firm Shakespeares, has died aged 57.

He had been with the firm since qualifying in 1968 and had been made a partner a year later.

Most recently he had been head of the firm's insurance and institutional litigation team.

Commenting on his death, Shakespeares' managing partner, Gary Christianson said: 'Everyone at Shakespeares who knew and worked alongside John is shocked and saddened by his sudden death.

'John made a substantial contribution to the growth and development of Shakespeares throughout the years and was respected throughout Birmingham and the legal profession generally for his work both inside and outside the firm.'

In addition to his responsibilities at Shakespeares, Mr Buckingham also held the position of Deputy District Judge and was an active member of several regional and national professional associations including the Birmingham Law Society where he was past president, the Chartered Insurance Institute, the British Insurance Law Association and the Medico Legal Society.

Mr Buckingham was divorced and lived in Edgbaston, Birmingham.
