Alan set up Nesbit & Co Solicitors in Bury in 2003. An APIL-accredited lawyer at Senior Litigator level, he has worked on both the claimant and defendant insurance side with various practices and now spends his time managing and driving forward Nesbit Law Group LLP, which also has offices in London, Liverpool and Leeds.
Alan specialises in defending allegations of fraud from a Claimant perspective, compliance and hire. Earlier in his career, he helped credit hire companies to join ABI GTA when it first started and he continues to monitor developments in the industry and assist hire companies at all levels of their operations. NLG is a member of MASS, an APIL-accredited firm and an Associate Member of the CHO. He has developed the specific niche in dealing with cases where fraud has been alleged to the extent that NLG is now the leading law firm in the country dealing with these types of cases and is used as an outsourcing specialist firm for many of the leading RTA PI practices in the country. As a result of this work NLG’s Allegation of Fraud team won the Claimant PI Team of the Year at the PI Awards in 2012. Alan has also been actively involved in ensuring that claims management companies are given the correct advice to fit in with both their own regulations through the MOJ and the Solicitors Rules of Conduct which affect the referral of claims. In 2009, he set up ARC (the Association of Regulated Claims Management Companies), a trade association that provides support and guidance to small to medium-sized claims management businesses. Through ARC Alan sits on the MOJ Regulatory Consultative Group for Claims Related Business as well as regularly being invited by Government to Stakeholder meetings on various industry related topics. He is a regular speaker in industry circles and contributes articles for several industry magazines. He has been recently shortlisted for Lawyer of the Year at the Modern Law Awards 2013.
