Meet David's team

    Experienced and straightforward to deal with

    After spending his entire legal career at WM, David retired as a Partner in April 2022.  He continues as a non-partner in a part time role as Chairman of the Board of Walker Morris LLP.

    During his time as our Head of Employment, David built one of the largest Employment Teams outside of London.

    People focused

    David knows that his ability to get straight to the point is an important strength, but his sense of humour and love of people are also extremely valuable:

    “I’ve been at Walker Morris for 38 years, and I think I mirror the Firm’s characteristics – easy-going, non-stuffy, friendly and open. I think these characteristics are essential in order to relate to a broad range of people”.

    David is heavily involved in our art sponsorship projects – of which we have a proud history.  He is currently involved in Walker Morris’s sponsorship of the anonymous heART project with Heart Research and was a judge in the children’s charity calendar competition for many years.

    “He’s very nice to deal with.”

    “He’s very pragmatic, very solutions-focussed and that’s what a business needs.”

    “Straightforward to deal with”
