David founded Darlingtons with his son James in January 2000, having until May 1998 been the Senior and Managing Partner of a top 100 London firm. He has more than 40 years experience in a variety of legal practices and in industry and has operated not only as a lawyer but as a successful businessman. He was and has been a full time executive director of a listed international leisure company and retains outside business interests in internet related start ups and management services for businesses.

David specialises in company & commercial law, and venture capital for both public and private companies, but to his clients, many of whom have been with him for many years he is equally a valuable problem solver, negotiator and sounding board. David was awarded an MBA in 1996 and is also an accredited mediator as well as a keen poker player.

“David has negotiated several successful deals for me, always getting to the point – not stretching it out. Continually thinking of only the client. He has saved me many thousands of pounds, both in securing great outcomes and keeping fees realistic.

I have used many law firms in my business, and by far and away the best strategist, and most client based solicitor is David Swede. He really cares about his clients.”
