Tony is the firm’s Operations Director and the national head of asbestos strategy, designing and evaluating best practice procedures for asbestos casework.
Tony works closely with trade unions, asbestos support groups and charities to ensure that every asbestos client receives the very best expert support and advice.
Consistency of high-quality, expert advice and representation to those for whom the firm acts is a key focus for Tony. He joined the Newcastle office in 2001, where he completed his training contract. Since then, Tony has specialised in asbestos cases and managed several different teams.
Tony became the first lawyer in the UK to win a 'third generation' asbestos exposure case when he secured compensation for a woman exposed through contact with her grandfather’s work clothes.
The driving force for Tony’s career has been courage and dignity in the face of a devastating diagnosis of an asbestos-related disease. His aim is to achieve the maximum amount of compensation in the shortest possible time for those affected, including their families.
