Anna Theodorides is the owner and principal of AMV Law. After graduating from the London School of Economics and Political Sciences in 1983, she then qualified as a Solicitor and by the age of 27 she had been made a partner of a City law firm, placing her in the vanguard of her peers as one of the youngest female partners in the country at that time. Having established herself as an expert in the Personal Injury field, Anna went on to establish large and successful P. I. departments in two further firms.
When Anna established AMV Law, she had the particular objective, learnt through her experience in large firms, to offer clients a unique and personal approach to making a claim. Anna’s philosophy was, and is, that all clients should be treated on a personal basis, in a friendly and efficient manner.
Making the client’s experience as easy as possible is a priority at AMV Law, and so every aspect of your claim will be discussed and dealt with in an appropriate manner, ensuring that all clients have a good understanding of the process and the way in which your claim is being progressed. It is all too easy to unwittingly drift away from this fundamental concept in a large firm, and Ann’s driver was to return this to the forefront of every case.
Anna has extensive experience in handling the most severe of accidents, from injuries such as brain damage as a result of road traffic accidents, to traumatic incidents in the workplace or public buildings. She has handled a number of high profile cases, including one involving a tragic still birth as a result of negligence from a London Hospital which was featured in the television documentary Panorama. Her firm has been expanding its reputation and portfolio at a time when the P.I sector of law has been entering a period of very significant change and many smaller firms such as hers have struggled or dropped out of the business.
At the same time, Anna has remained true to her ethos which is to provide a workplace that is inclusive to all employees, whatever their personal circumstances, to enable each one to fulfil their true potential. To this extent the firm now employs 18 staff, the majority of which are either female, from an ethnic minority or work part time, and the firm’s success in thriving with such a diverse team was recognised by the Law Society through the award for Equality and Diversity in 2012.
Anna was also named Highly Commended Legal Business Woman of the Year in 2013 in a category which recognises exceptional solicitors who have made outstanding contributions through the insight, flair, imagination, hard work or dedication they have applied to their client work.
This is not only a great achievement for Anna, but also for the whole team who have adopted her ethos and continue to fight hard for their clients to ensure they get the best results.
In her spare time she is a devoted wife and a mother to her daughter and step daughter. She loves cooking, travelling and music.
