Browne Jacobson partner appointed President of DASLS

19 June 2019

Nigel Lyons, a contentious regulatory partner at law firm Browne Jacobson LLP, has been appointed as the new President of the Devon and Somerset Law Society (DASLS) for 2019-20.

Nigel took over the position at DASLS AGM on 30 April this year from Stephen Mahoney who has been President since 2018. Prior to his appointment as President, Nigel was Vice President of DASLS and has also been President of Plymouth Law Society.

Nigel is based at the firm’s Exeter office and specialises in all types of contentious regulatory advocacy with a particular emphasis on representing south west business and the agricultural sector in health & safety and environmental cases. He defends individuals and businesses involved in such matters as well as advising and representing government and public bodies in prosecuting cases in the Magistrates and Crown Courts. 

Nigel Lyons commented on his appointment:

“I am delighted to have been elected as the next President for DASLS". 

“Stephen Mahoney has done a fantastic job during his year in office to promote the benefits of DASLS up and down the country and beyond. He has worked tirelessly to build key relationships that will strengthen the network and what it can offer to its members and I plan to continue with his good work, ensuring our local members remain at the heart of what we do.”

DASLS encourages and supports innovation, integrity and leadership in the legal profession and provides a strong focus for lawyers in the region.
