I specialise in recovering compensation for people who've been diagnosed with a workplace illness, which are often asbestos-related conditions. I help clients with conditions such as asbestosis, pleural thickening, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.
I am based in the Leeds office and I work with the work place illness team headed by Ian Toft. I have a particular interest in the exciting developments regarding immunotherapy.
