About me

Richard Davies has been handling workers' compensation matters on behalf of employers throughout Northeast Ohio and statewide since 1980. He has practiced extensively before the Industrial Commission of Ohio, and before trial and appellate courts throughout Ohio. In 1999 he was one of the first attorneys certified by the Ohio State Bar Association as specialists in Ohio workers' compensation law, and he has maintained that certification. Richard was recently selected by Super Lawyers and Law & Politics Magazine as an Ohio Super Lawyer for 2011 in the area of workers’ compensation law. This marks the third consecutive year he has been selected for this honor. The honor is limited to five percent of the total lawyers in Ohio.

Richard is also on the Board of Directors of, and the Secretary to, the British American Chamber of Commerce Ohio. BACC Ohio is a member of the British-American Business Council (BABC) which is the largest transatlantic business organization, consisting of more than 30 chapters and some 4,000 companies in major cities throughout North America and the United Kingdom.

Richard Davies received his Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from The College of Wooster in 1977, and his Juris Doctorate degree in 1980 from The Ohio State University Michael E. Moritz College of Law. He is also admitted to practice before the US District Court, Northern District of Ohio.
