Emily Edwards



I am a solicitor in the Southampton office, specialising in asbestos-related injury claims with a special interest in mesothelioma, a type of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. 

What inspired you to get into law?

When I was 13 I decided I wanted to become a solicitor because I enjoyed debating and seeing an argument from different perspectives. I am interested in people and wanted to work in an area which enabled me to advise and assist people to help resolve their problems, particularly when they were facing a difficult situation and were vulnerable, or had been treated poorly by an employer.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?

I enjoy negotiating and using creative arguments to achieve a positive outcome for a client and I enjoy undertaking investigatory work to get to the root of an issue. 

What do you do away from the office?

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going on country walks, cycling, dancing and swimming. I also love travelling to new places.
