WWL says

Nicholas Davidson QC is recognised by peers as a statesman of professional negligence practice who brings 40 years of experience to his cases.    


Nicholas was one of the founder members, and in due course Chair, of the Professional Negligence Bar Association, and is a Silk of vast experience, particularly of claims against lawyers and investment (and other financial) professionals. That extends to claims against accountants, notably Harlequin Property (SVG) Ltd v Wilkins Kennedy [2017] 4 W.L.R. 30. He has been involved in a number of matters concerned with corporate governance.

It has been said of him (in Chambers & Partners 2019) that he is someone who “produces masterpieces. The work, the detail, the focus that goes into it – it is outstanding; it blows me away.” It is also said that he has “a charming manner, which puts clients at ease”, but he is also a noted cross-examiner.

He is a Deputy High Court Judge, whose authority extends to the Circuit Commercial Court, and a Directions Judge for Bar disciplinary proceedings, an arbitrator, and a CEDR-accredited mediator.
