Obituary: Dominic Welham

Linklaters’ highly regarded corporate partner Dominic Welham has died aged 44 after a battle with cancer.

Welham specialised in all aspects of corporate finance and recently advised Allied Domecq on its acquisition by Pernod Ricard.

Linklaters partner and close friend Matthew Middleditch said: “He’s going to leave a huge hole in our group.

He always put in more than he took out, was invariably willing to help others out and kept us all in good spirits at all times.”
