Nicholas Davidson QC
Financial Services Professionals
Nicholas’ considerable experience of, and great interest in, financial services claims has perhaps had an emphasis on investment management or advice, where he has acted for both claimants and defendants (usually in arbitrations). Being himself a trustee of a defined benefit pension scheme, he has to be able to understand the investment challenges for trustees and managers, and to be aware of legislative and administrative background. He has acted for a major financial adviser in defence of a split caps claim, and for various individuals who, having sold successful businesses, made or are making claims against leading investment houses when their investments disappointed by 7-figure sums, and for other individuals whose investments are said not to have been tailored suitably; certain pension issues following the demise of a business, and issues relating to offshore investment funds, have been referred to him.
