Partners Anne Callinan

Earlier this week we received the sad news that partner and former Chair Kevin Jaffe had passed away.

Kevin made a huge contribution to Simpson Grierson. After starting his career with us as a law graduate in 1987, he moved on a year later, with the support of the firm, to pursue a BCL at Oxford University. After graduating, Kevin returned to Simpson Grierson in 1989 and became a partner in 1993.

Kevin built his reputation on being a skilled lawyer who gained his client’s trust and loyalty. Famous for his grasp of details, he was a strategic thinker who could always see the big picture. 

Astute at understanding people and a natural leader, Kevin led the Commercial Department from 2006 to 2009. He was appointed as the firm’s Chair in 2009 and served three terms.

Kevin was absolutely committed to Simpson Grierson and much admired by everyone at the firm.

Our thoughts are with his family.
