Power players and high achievers from Manchester and surrounding areas are set to be celebrated in the inaugural Manchester Power 100 list. The list aims to identify individuals making a difference across Manchester, whether you are in politics, business, entertainment, music, sports or charity.
At the helm of this list is Manchester Power 100 President – Andrew Twambley. Not only is Twambley a Manchester based solicitor but he is CEO of the largest lawyers marketing consortium in the UK .
Andrew qualified as a lawyer way back in 1981 and fought through the ranks of property, crime, family until he landed in injury litigation in the mid 90s. After grasping that calling by the scruff of the neck he orchestrated the most important case in injury/insurance litigation, via a case called Callery v Gray, which ended in victory in The House of Lords in 2001. That was a victory for the little guy against the might and bottomless pockets of the insurance industry.
From there he had the idea of setting up a legitimate way of gathering claims via TV advertising, and in 2003 InjuryLawyers4u was formed. In 2005 The BBC made a 6 part TV documentary about him and his firm, called “No Win No fee”.
In 2013 he received The Lifetime Achievement Award at The Claims Innovation Awards and in 2016 another Lifetime Achievement Award at the Modern Claims Awards.
Prior to being elected as President of Manchester power list, Twambley presided over the Britflix Power 100 list – A power list for figures in the film and TV industry.
