(London – September 15, 2020)—FisherBroyles, LLP, the first and largest distributed law firm in the world, with a growing team on both sides of the Atlantic, is pleased to announce that Anne Davies has joined the Firm in London as a partner.

Anne is a Business crime lawyer with 29 years of experience and joins the Firm from the challenger law firm gunnercooke where she was a partner for the last four years.

In her practice she focuses on health and safety, handling a broad range of regulatory investigations and prosecutions, assisting both companies and individuals to minimise the risk of criminal liabilities arising from internal or external investigations. She handles domestic and international business crime litigation matters including, health and safety, bribery and corruption, environmental crimes, product safety and white-collar crime.

She is also a contributing author to ‘One Percent Safer’, a compendium of incremental ideas and suggestions to improve workplace safety, along with 141 of the world’s leading experts and leaders in the field of health and safety. The book is edited by Professor Dr Andrew Sharman, President of the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health and contributors include representatives from the World Health Organisation, the United Nations, the International Labour Organisation, the British Safety Council and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.

Prior to gunnercooke, she practiced with Withers and Crowell & Moring, and is a graduate of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, and Chester College of Law with Law Society Finals First Class Honours.

Michael Pierson, Managing Partner of the Firm’s Global Corporate practice, said:

“We are delighted to welcome Anne to our growing team in London which has gone from strength to strength since our expansion into the UK earlier this year. Anne has a high-profile business crime practice and is a great addition to the “Employment Plus” team that we are building.

Anne Davies said:

 “For almost four years I’ve had the opportunity to work for a firm that has a similar model to FisherBroyles and as a result I was already a great supporter of the partner led, distributed model which allows for competitive fees for clients and no huge overheads. The attraction of joining FisherBroyles was its US connections and its growing transatlantic team, which I believe will become ever more important in the years to come post-Brexit.

“FisherBroyles’ ambitious goals for further growth and focus on bringing in partners with stellar backgrounds and ambition was another great draw for me. The fact that lawyers of such a high calibre such as Peter Finding and Rory Graham had already joined the firm only reinforced my assessment.”
