The Business Law Section is pleased to announce that Gordon "Gordy" K. Davidson will receive the Business Law Section’s 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is given annually to a California lawyer "who over an extended period has made significant contributions to the Section or to business law generally in the State of California and who has achieved high status in the legal community." The Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Mr. Davidson at the California Lawyers Association Annual Meeting in Monterey. The Business Law Section presents the award annually at its breakfast, which this year will be held on October 11, 2019, at 7:30 a.m.
You may have seen Gordy in the financial news lately, as he and a team from Fenwick & West just completed a $10.7 billion sale involving leading cybersecurity company Symantec Corp. Gordy has been the leader and lifeblood of Fenwick & West’s Silicon Valley presence for many years; he was around when Silicon Valley was developing into the tech capital of the world. Gordy’s service to the business law community makes him very deserving of this prestigious honor.
