Coby Benson is a solicitor with Bott & Co. He joined in 2009 in order to complete the mandatory Solicitors’ training programme. Over the course of the next two years he gained a wealth of experience in both litigated and non-litigated personal injury cases (some worth in excess of £1 million) and also in the corporate sector, dealing with regulatory law, commercial disputes and corporate transactions.
Once qualified, Coby dedicated his time to working on a varied case load of personal injury cases, many of which are worth six figure sums.
He has also developed a particular interest in motorcycle accidents, where liability is often firmly in dispute and where the resulting injuries are of the utmost severity.
He has successfully concluded cases against many multi-million pound organisations, such as the Ministry of Defence, McDonalds, Royal Mail, Tesco, and Renault F1.
Coby has now joined the Aviation Department as Technical Legal Manager in order to ensure that the legal services are delivered in an efficient, consistent and efficacious manner.
He won the Modern Law Awards Rising Star of the Year in 2013 and was shortlisted for the Law Society Junior Lawyer of the Year 2013.
Prior to obtaining his academic qualifications he worked as a computer programmer and was a Director in a company providing B2C hotel and travel services on the internet. In his spare time Coby enjoys reading, movies, rock climbing and badminton.
