Bottoms English Lawyers
From small beginnings, Bottoms English has developed into a firm of six solicitors, two articled clerks, two conveyancing clerks and twelve support staff. Development into a medium-sized practice over the last 26 years is a result of offering very “personal service” to our clients – a philosophy that has helped us develop into a successful commercial and litigation practice. We are small enough to know all our clients, and large enough with the depth of knowledge to handle any problems you may have. The principals of our firm, John Bottoms and Anne English, practice in Estate Planning, Corporate Law, Business Succession Planning, Maritime Law, Mining, Natural Resources, Native Title, Local Government Law, Commercial and Finance Law. Mr Bruce Brown is our personal injuries lawyer. He specialises in all areas of litigation with particular expertise in Workers Compensation, Motor Vehicle Insurance, Public Liability Insurance, Professional Responsibility, Aviation and Maritime Injury Litigation. Robert Apps handles our civil litigation, education law, criminal law, commercial law and leases and has a diverse practice that focuses on commercial and complex estate litigation. Esme Elms manages the family law section covering matrimonial disputes, property settlements and all children’s issues. Esme seeks to find early resolution and to keep your dispute out of Court if at all possible, thereby minimising fees and emotional trauma. Renee Sapelli heads up our conveyancing department. Renee and her team are committed to the speedy settlement of your property. Renee is a registered migration agent. Bottoms English aims to provide legal advice our clients can understand and can afford. We are committed to reaching early resolutions to your legal problems and our success is measured by the solutions we can put in place for you. Come and meet us, we’d love to help.
