With great sadness we announce the passing of Mary Butler

1st July 2019

Mary Butler was a leading light of the Sheffield legal scene; it is with great sadness that we must announce that Mary recently passed away on the evening of Sunday 30thJune, after battling cancer for the past few years.

Senior Partner and Head of Contentious Probate at Bell & Buxton solicitors, Mary was recognised as a leading lawyer in this field with over 25 years of experience. She progressed this niche area of law and was a passionate advocate for the profession. From her clients, to her colleagues and counterparts, Mary touched all of our lives and brought warmth, fortitude and tenacity to the Bell & Buxton family. She was not just recognised as a brilliant legal mind in local circles, but nationally too, winning awards and accolades throughout her career. She always fought for what was right, and her moral compass was as strong as her faith. She will be much missed by friends and family alike. Fellow Partner and long-time friend, Charles Neal said, -Mary was a huge part of the Bell & Buxton family, and as sad as we are that she is gone, we are also equally grateful to have known her and considered her our friend, colleague, and mentor. "She touched the lives of all that knew her and brought wisdom, humour and honesty with each encounter. Mike, Katharine, Edmund and the whole family are in our thoughts and prayers. Mary died peacefully at home with care, love, and support provided by her friends and family. All enquiries should be directed to Charles Neal at Bell & Buxton. Please be respectful of the family's wishes at this difficult time.
