Tony joined Bott and Co in 2001 and is an integral part of the senior management team. He plays a significant role in driving efficiency within the Road Traffic Accident Department (RTA) in light of the constantly challenging and changing legal environment.
Tony started his legal career in 1994 working for Addleshaw Goddard (then Addleshaw Sons and Latham), specialising in Commercial Debt Recovery and Insolvency. Thereafter he joined James Chapman and Co, a leading North West Law firm dealing with Commercial Recovery and Defendant Personal Injury matters.
At Bott and Co, he manages the overall operational and budgetary responsibilities of the RTA department. No matter how small or big the claim is, Tony will deal with each case with the same straight talking enthusiasm, experience and dedication. His vast experience has seen him achieve the highest value claim in the firm, which settled for in excess of £1 million.
