23/04/2020
Head of asbestos claims Peter Williams said that he was delighted that Fieldfisher has been appointed onto the inaugural legal panel of leading charity Mesothelioma UK to support and raise awareness of the charity and to offer independent legal support to mesothelioma patients and their families.

Mesothelioma UK provides specialist research, information, education and support on asbestos-related cancer nationally and funds specialist NHS mesothelioma nurses to care for sufferers of the disease. The firm has been associated with the charity for more than 15 years.

Fieldfisher’s mesothelioma team of seven specialist lawyers, based in London and Manchester, has been fighting for justice for victims of the disease for more than 30 years. The team is listed as a Top Tier practice in Chambers.

"It is as important as ever that people exposed to asbestos by the negligence of their employers know they can get legal advice on how to claim for compensation for themselves and their families," Peter said.

"The work of Mesothelioma UK is vital in supporting those affected and providing much-needed expert care in hospitals around the country.

"It's an honour for us to be associated with the charity."

Liz Darlison, head of services for Mesothelioma UK, said: “All eight law firms were selected following an open and comprehensive application process.

“We’re confident that they’ll bring significant legal expertise to help us to promote the work of the charity and to increase our support for mesothelioma patients, their families and carers throughout the UK.”
