  • As a young lawyer I found Sophie quite inspiring opposite her on quite a few occasions. That is very sad and a terrible loss at what is a young age - my thoughts go out to her family.

    In her legacy, she leaves in place a top class law firm.

  • My condolences to Sophie's family, she was the most amazing woman who I knew from our morning dog walks for over 10 years in Kensington Gardens. She has been and will always be sadly missed in the gardens; and I shall remember her smiles and waves from a distance.

  • I would like to thank Nola for her very thoughtful comment. I am Sophie's sister, and have wondered every time I walked Dougal in the park in the last few months who would be missing Sophie and wondering about her. It is heartwarming to find someone who did. Sophie and Peter (her husband, who died last year) loved the park and their walks with Dougal there, and often spoke of the people they had met. Kate

  • I was on the other side of a transaction to Sophie about 10 years ago. When I casually mentioned at a meeting that I was doing the London Marathon for charity, she immediately responded with a very generous donation, which was so kind as she didn't know me at all. I won't forget that and I am very sorry to hear this news.

  • I knew Sophie for over 30 years working at Frere Cholmeley and then Fosters. Sophie was one of the nicest people ever. An awe inspiring lady with a brilliant sense of humour and fun; a more generous and caring person you couldn't find. I cannot believe she has gone but am so glad I had the privilege of knowing her.

  • I had the absolute pleasure to spend two lovely mornings every week for 3 years with Sophie as her personal trainer. It would be a massive understatement to say how generous, caring and kind of a person Sophie was. Although I gave her fitness advice she gave so much more in return, her positive support, great advice, and love are things I will continue to use in my journey, a journey I would be proud to say became as amazing as hers.

  • I was saddened and shocked to learn this morning about the passing of Sophie. I was a partner of her's many years ago. She was an excellent lawyer who didn't suffer fools gladly. I bumped into her on the tube a few years ago and she was truly delightful. My sympathies to her family and colleagues.

  • It is sad to hear of this loss, especially of someone so young and inspiring. I had the pleasure of working along side Sophie on a large transaction in 2001. I learnt so much from her, she will be truly missed.
    My prayers are with Sophie's family and friends at this difficult time.
