Obituary – Matt Ashley, Osborne Clarke


It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of  Matt Ashley of Osborne Clarke over the Christmas period, shortly after being diagnosed with bowel cancer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Matt was a hugely valued member of the residential development team at Osborne Clarke and at Clarke Willmott before that. He was well-known and well-liked throughout the Bristol legal community, where he had many friends amongst his current and former colleagues.

Matt generously shared his time and expertise with a range of industry and charitable organisations. He held leadership positions with The Institute of Residential Property Management and used his property management expertise to help develop community-led housing in Bristol as well as helping The Scouts manage their property portfolio.

Our thoughts are very much with Matt’s wife, children and wider family at this sad time.

Osborne Clarke have set up a book of remembrance for Matt and BLS members who knew Matt are welcome to contribute to it.  https://www.theonlinebookcompany.com/OnlineBooks/MatthewAshley/Content/Filler

There is also a remembrance fundraising page in aid of Bowel Cancer UK
