William G. (Bill) Davis, Grenville’s son, joined the firm in the mid 1950s. In 1959, Bill was elected to the provincial legislature and left the firm to devote his time to public service. The Hon. William G. Davis P.C. C.C. Q.C. served as Premier of Ontario from 1971 until 1985. He has rejoined the firm as Counsel.
Ronald Webb Q.C. joined Bill and Grenville Davis in the late 1950s. Bill’s son, current partner, Neil G. Davis, later joined the firm and is the third generation of the family at Davis Webb LLP.
Other partners, Christopher Moon, Ronald Sleightholm, Ellen S. Pefhany, Barbara Skupien, and James S.G Macdonald all have distinguished service in the Peel and Toronto regions.
