Arjun Mediratta is a Portal Fee Earner in the Road Traffic Accident department at Bott and Co, having joined the firm in 2017.
Before pursuing a career in Law, Arjun qualified with a degree in Politics and Economics having wanted to work in London as an Economist or in Actuarial sciences. However after a secondment at the Supreme Court and following through the landmark case of Parking Eye versus Beavis and Wardley, Arjun decided to pursue the Graduate Diploma in Law and pursue a career in the Legal sector.
Being a non-law graduate, the secondment was an opportunity for him to explore a career in law following the unconventional route. Deciding to read law from a different degree allowed Arjun to see the legal framework and its socio-economic impacts on companies, laws and the governments.
Having worked in several silver-circle law firms, Arjun has a broad range of experience working within high performing, cohesive and busy legal environments.
Arjun enjoys helping clients get the compensation they deserve and constantly strives to do this by negotiating the maximum amount of compensation for his clients’ injuries. He takes time to help clients and ensures their claim process runs as smoothly as possible.
Currently, Arjun works in the Personal Injury team as a Litigation Executive and specialises in road traffic accidents including cyclist cases, assisting on multi-track litigated files and managing his own caseload. Arjun prides himself on his commercial and operationally focused approach which has helped in settling cases for the best outcome possible, whilst adhering to work to tight deadlines.
Experience and understanding of laws, legal codes and protocols, court procedures, precedents and government regulations makes Arjun a strong team player with excellent client care skills. He possesses a unique ability to communicate complex sensitive information in an understandable form to clients.
He is friendly and proactive, with great attention to detail and relationship management skills, and has an empathetic approach towards clients. Arjun’s main priority is to secure a training contract at Bott and Co and qualify as a Solicitor.
Thanks to his expertise, he has been able to help clients recover the maximum amount of compensation to which they are entitled. He believes in securing justice for the injured party as quickly as possible, while ensuring that a painstaking enquiry is carried out to establish the full liability of the defendant.
