David Ziyambi

David helped to found and was an inaugural global leader of Latham’s Black Lawyers Group, which aims to enable black lawyers to establish and maintain broader networks, to attract, retain and promote black talent, and to foster an inclusive culture supporting the long-term success of black lawyers. He assisted in establishing Latham’s unique ‘mentoring families’ program, and the now biennial BLG global retreat. David is a Trustee and Treasurer of the BIGKID Foundation, mentoring and supporting young people in the UK who are at risk of social exclusion and violence. In partnership with the International Lawyers for Africa, he acts as Latham’s mentor and buddy for the ILFA’s secondment program. He also mentors students, particularly those from minority backgrounds, looking to pursue a career in law.
