Davis brings over 20 years of experience in complex mergers and acquisitions, financings and other transactional matters.  He frequently advises asset managers, funds and fund sponsors, insurance companies, broker-dealers, financial institutions and investors in connection with transactions involving financial services businesses or financial assets.  He regularly counsels multi-national corporations and their constituents on cross-border transactional matters across a broad range of asset classes and industries.  Davis’ experience also includes representing issuers and investors in connection with venture capital and growth equity financings, business formation, securities, and corporate governance matters.  

Before joining Brown Rudnick, Davis was a partner at Mayer Brown LLP, where he served as Co-Chair of Mayer Brown’s Financial Institutions M&A Group. 

“Ed’s experience and approach to law are a great fit for our Firm and the Corporate and Capital Markets Department,” said Joseph F. Ryan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “His experience and smart, thoughtful counsel have earned him an impressive record of success that aligns with Brown Rudnick’s mission and values. We couldn’t be more excited about our new partner.”

Davis represents the second strategic hire for Brown Rudnick's New York Corporate practice this year, following the arrival of a team of three, led by Clara Krivoy, in July. The office is the Firm’s third-largest office worldwide.

“I’m extremely proud to join this incredible, growing team of attorneys, known for their ingenuity and ambition in tackling some of today’s most complex matters, particularly in the cross-border and funds arena” said Davis.  "I look forward to contributing to the continued growth and success of the Firm."
