Malcolm Davis has announced his retirement with effect from Friday 11 March 2016.
Malcolm was one of the founding partners of Davis Frankel & Mead which is today DWFM Beckman. He started his early practice M. Marcus Davis &Co, which was largely property and finance based, shortly after qualification and after some years as a sole practitioner was joined by Monty Frankel, Tony Mead and Peter Bridson. The firm had to leave its former elegant period offices in Queen Anne Street and from there continued to grow and developed its international clientele.
During a long and distinguished career in the profession, Malcolm has acted for a wide variety of clients, some of considerable note who became captains of industry and others household names helping Davis Frankel and Mead (or DF&M as it become known) to acquire a reputation as one of the first boutique West End law firms dealing with HNW clients. Malcolm has also made a significant social contribution to the community in Hampstead Garden Suburb in which he resides by serving as local councillor, where his specialist knowledge in planning was put to good use, and for many years as chairman of a local charitable trust.
Few people (except certain pop stars) retire twice but Malcolm has managed it, first as a partner back in 2001 and now from his consultancy. We all wish him well for the future.
