Work Department

David is a partner who heads Eversheds' Health and Safety team. The team's work encompasses business compliance and enforcement that extends not only to health and safety (and particularly serious incidents often involving fatalities) but also contentious environmental cases, food safety and product safety. The team provides a growing amount of international compliance advice and client training programmes and is known for its 24/7 crisis management line which David was instrumental in developing. 

David has considerable experience across all these fields. He led the team that advised the terminal operator for over 4 years following the Buncefield explosion in 2005 and advises clients in the energy and natural resources sector in particular. He is also particularly experienced in food sector work and has represented many household names in regulatory investigations. David and his team increasingly advise clients operating internationally and he has been involved in establishing and reviewing crisis support arrangements for clients in a number of jurisdictions beyond the UK.

David is a founder member of the Food Law Group, contributes articles regularly to a variety of business publications and is a regular presenter at seminars and events. He was described in Chambers' legal directory for 2012 as "one of the pre-eminent practitioners in the field of health and safety. Sources comment on his "commanding manner" and his "sensible and measured approach. He is a really strong corporate defence lawyer; he never gets flustered". He is viewed as "a class act".

The new currency control system will be launched on 7 February 2019, the same day as the Law of Ukraine  On Currency and Exchange Transactions  becomes applicable.
