Press Release - Our Client: John Davidson


After a five year investigation initiated at the dispatch box, there has been a finding of no evidence against him, relating not only to criminal conduct but also general misconduct in this prolonged matter. We recognise that the process of inquiry is rigorous, thorough and desirable in the interests of justice. Nevertheless, reputational damage can be irreversible. Whilst our client has remained positive throughout as to his innocence, the investigation has induced in him a state of hopelessness and despair, compelling him to live in a continued position of anxiety and insecurity. The penumbra of uncertainty has now been removed and Mr Davidson simply wishes to continue with his life unencumbered but ever mindful of the tragedy this has been for the family of Stephen Lawrence.
