Overview

Ian Davis is an associate attorney at McGinnis Lochridge who represents individuals, companies, and government entities in state and federal courts across Texas. Ian is equipped to manage a wide range of legal disputes, including complex civil litigation, federal and state constitutional law, employment law, intellectual property, real estate litigation, appeals, and administrative proceedings before Texas agencies.

Throughout every stage of a lawsuit, Ian aligns his clients’ business goals to their litigation strategy. Ian eschews scorched earth tactics in favor of practical solutions for his clients. He is a trusted advocate who fights for his clients until a matter is resolved. Ian has trial experience in both federal and state courts, and routinely appears in court for motion practice.

In 2022, Ian successfully tried a case on behalf of a pro bono client, delivering a well-deserved courthouse victory. Ian served as lead counsel at trial, conducting opening and closing statements, and putting on expert and lay witnesses. With fewer cases tried in today’s legal climate, Ian’s comfort and experience in the courtroom serves as a valuable asset for his clients.

An Austin native, Ian graduated with High Honors from Emory University School of Law. Prior to joining the Firm in 2020, Ian worked for the Joint Distribution Committee in Tel Aviv, Israel and Riga, Latvia. In that role, Ian coordinated the Committee’s juvenile rights division in Central Israel, supported community leadership in fostering government relations, worked with legal counsel to provide property restitution for confiscated communal assets, and assisted in the distribution of humanitarian aid.
