Field Fisher Waterhouse support Action Mesothelioma Day
The industrial disease team at Field Fisher Waterhouse attended a number of events to mark Action Mesothelioma Day on Friday 5 July 2013.
Peter Williams head of our asbestos claims department attended a talk along with one of his clients Ann Syz at a commemoration service for victims of mesothelioma organised by the London Hazards Group and East London Mesothelioma Support (ELMS) at Stratford Town Hall. The talks were followed by a sponsored dove release. Partner Caroline Pinfold together with Associate Dushal Mehta also attended this event. Doves were released in memory of those who have passed away from this disease (see above video). For more details and photographs on the event visit London Hazards Group.
