Tributes have been paid to former Treasury Solicitor and head of the Government Legal Service Sir Paul Jenkins QC, who has died at the age of 63.

In a statement this morning, Matrix Chambers, where Jenkins was a member, said that it was ‘heartbroken’ to share news of the death.

Jenkins was called to the bar in 1977 and joined the Treasury Solicitor’s Department in 1979. He served in legal posts across government, from the Monopolies and Mergers Commission to the Department for Work and Pensions. He was head of the Government Legal Service, now the Government Legal Department, from 2006 to 2014. In that post Jenkins headed reforms that paved the way for a shared legal service across Whitehall.
