Nick is also a frequent speaker and author on doing business in growth markets.
Nick is ranked in various legal directories for both his offshore and onshore work, with Legal 500 noting that he "provides excellent advice and is easy to work with"; IFLR ranking him as a 'rising star'; and Who's Who Legal commenting that the "impressive" Nicholas Davies offers “expert advice” combined with “substantial understanding and experience of the commercial, legal and cultural issues associated with completing transactions".
