‘Absolutely standout claimant personal injury and industrial disease team. Fieldfisher have an outstandingly able team of lawyers who devote significant amounts of focused partner and senior solicitor time to their cases. They provide exemplary, compassionate and supportive client care and are unflinching in their pursuit of their cases.’

‘The genuine care that they display towards their clients is unparalleled, as is the attention to detail in claim management, optimising outcomes for their clients.They drive cases incredibly hard to conclusion. They have a very tough litigation and negotiation style but are pragmatic, flexible and resourceful. They are simply hugely experienced and able. In particular, unlike many others they are nimble on their feet but have huge resources at their disposal because they are part of a city firm.’

'Peter Williams is one of the very best in the field of industrial disease.’

'Dushal Mehta is an outstanding lawyer – he’s dedicated, exceptionally hard-working and very caring.

Shaheen Mosquera is an absolutely top-class operator in asbestos litigation; tenacious and conscientious in equal measure. She gets superb results for her clients in difficult claims on both liability and quantum. I would highly recommended her for complex and high-value mesothelioma claims.’

Work highlights

Challenging the law regarding mesothelioma claims, including acting on behalf of a claimant whose husband died having been exposed to asbestos at an ICI explosives factory at Ardeer, North Ayrshire.
