(LONDON) October 17, 2016 – Locke Lord Partner Joanne Davis, Head of the Firm's Asset, Leasing & Consumer Finance division in the UK, was named winner of the ‘Leasing Contribution of the Year’ award at this month’s 2016 Leasing World Awards Dinner. Davis was recognized for her impressive contributions to the sector from organizing and leading seminars to working with Women in Leasing, an initiative of the Leasing Foundation to support women across the leasing and asset finance industry.
Lord Mitchell, a member of the House of Lords since 2000, praised Davis “for her tireless work organising seminars, writing handbooks and articles and leading committees to help both brokers and funders, the NACFB and the FLA on the FCA rules and regulations that now govern the credit industry and credit intermediaries business.”
Davis is a Governor of the Leasing Foundation and Associate Member of The Finance and Leasing Association. She has previously been named ‘Leasing Personality of the Year’ by Leasing World and in July was recognized for the fourth time by Leasing Life as one of the most influential people in the European leasing industry on its Power 50 List.
At Locke Lord, Davis deals with a wide range of matters from consumer credit advisory and transactional matters, through to financial services regulation and compliance to include compliance with the FCA handbook and Consumer Credit Sourcebook implementation. She also advises clients on new product launches and offers general regulatory advisory services. Davis is a member of the Firm’s global Banking and Finance Practice Group.
