London, UK – 31.10.13 – Bott & Co, a leading firm of personal injury and flight compensation solicitors, has won the Team of the Year Award at the 2013 Modern Law Awards. The award, sponsored by ISO (Insurance Services Office), recognised the Bott Aviation team's role in providing an innovative compensation recovery service to passengers on delayed or cancelled flights. As the first service of its kind in the UK, the Bott Aviation team has been responsible for taking a number of airlines to court — and winning — on behalf of air passengers.
Bott Aviation launched its service in February 2013, following a ruling by the European Court of Justice in October 2012 that paved the way for hundreds of thousands of claimants for delayed and cancelled flights within the past six years under EU Regulation 261. The Bott Aviation team now has more than 9,000 clients and has recovered more than £750,000 for more than 2,000 passengers.
"The aviation team operates in a unique field of law," commented Paul Hinchliffe, managing partner of Bott & Co. "It's the only legal team in the UK operating exclusively in Regulation 261 claims in any volume, so we're delighted that the Modern Law Awards has recognised the team for providing justice to thousands of airline passengers. As the leading UK law firm for flight compensation, we're in the perfect position to help delayed passengers receive the money to which they're entitled."
"We were excited to be part of the Modern Law Awards and are keen to support and recognise a team with a passion and commitment for excellent legal services," added Joe Pendle, managing director of ISO, the sponsor of the Team of the Year Award at the Modern Law Awards. "Bott & Co are leading the way in the UK for air passenger rights."
