Arthur Davidson QC

It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our great friend and esteemed colleague Arthur Davidson QC who passed away on Tuesday evening. 

Arthur Davidson QC was called to the Bar in 1953 and took silk in 1978. From 1982 to 1983 he was Shadow Attorney General for the Labour party. He was Legal Director of Associated Newspapers from 1985 to 1991 and Legal Director of Mirror Group Newspapers from 1991 to 1993. He joined Cloisters in 1994 where practised for over 10 years, specialising in media and sports law.

Many of his colleagues at Cloisters remember him as an incredibly kind gentleman and a supremely gifted barrister. Cloister’s Senior Clerk, Glenn Hudson, said “He was a true gentleman, had time for everyone and was universally liked.” He will be missed.
