Christopher N. Davies Appointed Chair of Florida Bar Board Certification Committee
Cohen & Grigsby director Christopher N. Davies has been appointed to serve as the Chair of The Florida Bar’s Condominium and Planned Development Law Certification Committee, effective July 1, 2018. Mr. Davies previously served as Vice Chair.
Board certification recognizes attorneys’ special knowledge, skills and proficiency in various areas of law and professionalism and ethics in practice. Applicants are also required to pass satisfactory peer review and a rigorous written examination. Established in 1982 by the Florida Supreme Court, Board certification helps consumers identify specialists, and represents the Bar’s highest level of evaluation on the competency and experience of attorneys. In June 2018, The Florida Bar formally announced the certification of 129 attorneys as Board Certified in Condominium and Planned Development Law. This was the inaugural class.
Mr. Davies leads the condominium and homeowner association law team at Cohen & Grigsby. For more than three decades, he has focused his practice on providing advice to condominium, cooperative and homeowner associations. His representation has included more than 500 boards in Southwest Florida.
Mr. Davies frequently lectures on critical issues involving condominium and homeowner association law. He received his J.D. and LL.M. from Tulane University Law School.
