Tributes paid after shock passing of law firm boss Dave Marlor

Dave Marlor 1979 - 2023

Partners at law firm Glaisyers ETL are mourning the passing of managing partner, Dave Marlor, after a period of illness, at the age of just 43.

Dave joined Glaisyers in 2018 when, alongside the firm’s executive partner, David Jones, he led a management buy-in at the Manchester law firm. In addition to his role as managing partner he also headed the firm’s property team.

Prior to joining Glaisyers, Dave spent 15 years at Kuit Steinart Levy in Manchester, having completed his law degree at the University of Leicester in 2001.

David Jones said, “Dave was our friend, colleague and leader. He wasn’t just our managing partner, he was our inspiration and moral compass.

“He led Glaisyers through Brexit, a global pandemic and general macro-economic malaise. He did so with a smile, a quiet confidence, generosity and a touch of verve.

“Dave’s love of impractical cars and trucks (TVR and GMC mechanics all over the North West will mourn his loss), and above all, his dear wife Sam, were legendary. We send our deepest condolences to her, his parents and his brother Andy. 

“Whilst we can’t believe he has really gone, we will endeavour to keep his legacy going. We will remember to ask, ‘What would Dave do/say?’ as often as possible.” 

A book of condolence, for those who would like to share their memories of Dave, is open at:
