With great sadness, we are updating this page with the news that Dan, our friend and colleague, passed away on 23 November 2023.

Dan joined Lewis Silkin in 2018 and was a much-loved member of our IP team. Dan was diagnosed with a rare cancer - pT2 N1 urachal adenocarcinoma of the bladder - in September 2019, when he was 31 years old.

Despite undergoing several years of extensive treatment, Dan was known for retaining both his sense of humour and his level of ambition. He set himself multiple new goals during his illness and performed as a stand-up comedian, learned to teach yoga, took an intensive AI coding course, dabbled in DJing and even sat his New York bar exam during chemo, achieving some of the highest grades. He was passionate about life and did as much as he could to make the most of it.

Dan leaves behind a wife and loving family, who are determined to carry his tenacity onwards. As such, they have launched this fundraising page to help raise awareness of the form of cancer Dan had, and to raise money to make sure every effort is made to defeat it. Dan’s wife and family are working with his oncologist Dr Deborah Enting (NHS Guy’s Hospital), to establish the best use of the money raised.

We will miss you Dan – rest in peace.

Dan Hawkins, 1988 - 2023
