Major Warren Davies practised at the Criminal Bar in London prior to commissioning into the Army Legal Services. During his service as a lawyer in the British Army, Warren regularly prosecuted on behalf of the Crown in the Court Martial and the Court Martial Appeal Court and provided disciplinary, regulatory and administrative legal advice to the chain-of-command, developing particular expertise in cases involving offences against the person, fraud, sex offences and Service law.
Warren subsequently acquired in-depth knowledge as an operational lawyer in the field of international humanitarian law (the law of armed conflict) and provided advice to training and operations for Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan and counter-terrorism operations. Warren’s last post was as the senior legal advisor to Headquarters 16 Air Assault Brigade, during which time he forged greater legal understanding and interoperability with French and US partners and established close links as a guest tutor with the University of Essex School of Law and Human Rights Centre.
Warren left the British Army in 2015 and currently works in EMEA regulatory compliance for a major corporate investment bank in London. He continues to serve in the Army Reserve and has a non-executive directorship of an innovative sustainability and packaging company.
Outside of the law, Warren is a passionate Welsh rugby supporter and, having hung up his playing boots, continues to support the grassroots game as a coach, qualified referee and member of the Army Rugby Union Referee Society. He is also a frustrated golfer who struggles to maintain an 11 handicap and his other interests include cricket, fine dining, the countryside, politics and current affairs.
