Steven Rees Davies

Partner

Steven's practice covers a broad spectrum of corporate and commercial law with specific depth and experience in corporate governance, finance, securities, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and restructuring. 

A recognised specialist in the fintech and digital asset sector, Steven worked with the Bermuda government in the introduction and development of its digital asset legal and regulatory regime, and represents a significant number of digital asset companies headquartered, or with operations, in Bermuda. He also has particular expertise in the wider technology, telecommunications and energy sectors.  

Steven regularly represents clients on a wide variety of local and cross-jurisdictional corporate and regulatory transactions and restructurings as well as public offerings (IPOs), private placements and listings on the Bermuda, New York and London stock exchanges. He also advises on complex multinational joint ventures and private equity projects. 

Steven has acted as a director on the boards of US and European listed companies as well as smaller entrepreneurial private companies and has advised on all aspects of business law that affect such entities. He is as comfortable advising technology start-ups as he is with the boards of international conglomerates.
