Senior Management Team

Andy Kay

Director of operations

First4Lawyers, July 27, 2018

As well as directing operations here at First4Lawyers, Andy Kay is also on our senior management team.

Andy joined us from AmTrust Europe Legal in early 2015, where he was managing director.

With almost 30 years’ experience in the insurance and legal sector, Andy has worked with a number of businesses, including AXA, D J Miller and City Claims. It is experience he has put to good use at First4Lawyers, where he oversees the development and implementation of the First4Lawyers business strategy and the day-to-day operation of the business.

He works closely with managing director, Qamar Anwar, and finds himself engaged in a variety of work including business development, claims handling and marketing.

As his job title suggests, Andy plays a pivotal role in ensuring his colleagues on the senior management team are meeting their objectives and delivering against the business strategy: “Our senior management team is small – six people in total - but we’re hugely focused and achieve a great deal. It’s a fast-paced environment, but the breadth of the role keeps me fully occupied. There’ll be some days when I look up and start thinking about lunch only to see the clock says 3pm!”

Andy has also been instrumental in ensuring First4Lawyers has grown its brand profile. It’s not been without its challenges though. Andy has to navigate a constant stream of government reforms, yet he remains undeterred, saying: “We’ll carry on fighting for what is right for innocent injury victims, and for our panel law firms. For our panel law firms that means an increased focus on providing a first class service, fully-qualified leads across PI and clinical negligence, and further diversification into other legal services.”

“The market continues to change and we have to be ahead of that, thankfully, despite being the leading brand in the market, we’re still a relatively small family-run business which brings with it a certain speed and ease of decision-making. It’s hugely refreshing and means we can achieve things more efficiently and effectively than some of our competitors.”
