Tony Fisher

Partner & Chair

Tony Fisher is a Partner and Chair at FJG. He has over 40 years’ experience in private legal practice and has been listed as a leading practitioner for corporate and commercial work in both the Legal500 and the Chambers directories for a number of years. He has an MBA in Legal Practice and is a member of various trade and business organisations. In January 2018 he was awarded the Modern Law Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in the legal profession. Others who have received this award include Baroness Hale the former President of the Supreme Court, and in 2023 Dame Fiona Woolf former President of the Law Society and Lord Mayor of London. In October 2018 he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Essex at the University Centre Colchester. Tony is also a CEDR accredited mediator.

Aside from his commercial work, Tony also undertakes international and domestic human rights work and has appeared as an advocate in the European Court of Human Rights on many occasions. He has also been a Fellow of the Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex and is a member of the Human Rights Committee of the Law Society of England and Wales. He also sits on the Council of the Law Society as the representative for the Essex constituency and on the International Committee, which oversees the international work of the Law Society.

In March 2022 he was appointed as the UK representative on a new Committee of Experts on the Protection of Lawyers at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg. The Committee’s job is to draft a new instrument on the protection of the rights of lawyers in Europe over the next two years.

Excellent and efficient service with attention to detail and courteous attention.

An absolute pleasure to deal with. The attention to detail and prompt and accurate interventions to get things done on time was outstanding.

I just wanted to express my thanks to you and your team for a brilliant job with my business sale. I really doubted the whole process could be completed in such a short time scale but he made it happen with the minimum stress possible.

Away from FJG Tony undertakes a lot of voluntary human rights work as Chairperson of the Human Rights Committee and enjoys wine, new technology, interesting old cars, photography, travel and spending time with his family of four sons, three stepdaughters, and a tortoise called Aubrey.
