CC’s Davis elected vice-president of LSLA

Clifford Chance litigation partner Simon Davis has been elected as the new vice-president of the London Solicitors Litigation Association (LSLA).

Davis, who is also the Law Society council member for the City of London, was elected at this week’s annual general meeting of the LSLA. He was previously the association’s treasurer, and will be succeeded in that role by Seamus Smyth of City firm Carter Lemon Camerons.

Traditionally, the LSLA vice-president succeeds the president when the two-year presidential term of office is complete. The current LSLA president, elected last March, is Lovells partner Graham Huntley.

The LSLA has over 800 members drawn from across the capital and representing a wide variety of firms. It represents the interests of civil and commercial litigators, responding to consultations on issues as wide as the new QC system, the Supreme Court, and costs.
