GA Solicitors 

GA

GA Solicitors’ specialist asbestos team has more than two decades of experience in dealing with a wide range of asbestos claims, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural thickening.

Our APIL accredited and Law Society Panel experts have dealt with a high volume of cases recovering millions of pounds for our clients and their families. The team is particularly renowned for cases against the Ministry of Defence, dockyards, power stations, schools and construction companies, as well as cases relating to secondary exposure. Our team also includes specialist solicitors in asthma, COPD and silicosis cases.

We can work on a no win, no fee basis and secure interim payments to fund any necessary care, equipment or adaptations to your home. This may include stair lifts or walk-in showers to improve your quality of life and provide respite for any carers.

Ranked in The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, GA Solicitors is an established firm which offers unrivalled levels of client service, with an empathetic yet professional approach.

Simpson Millar

As a historic trade union firm, Simpson Millar is experienced in helping mesothelioma patients and their families.

We understand the devastating effect a mesothelioma diagnosis can have on families, which is why we are proud to support the vital work done by the BLF.

Through outreach campaigns, we raise awareness of the dangers of dormant asbestos and work tirelessly to make the public aware of the health risks associated with asbestos exposure.

One of our most recent campaigns was for the late Susan Stephens, a former primary school teacher whose daughter, Lucie Stephens, set up an online petition to raise awareness of asbestos in schools and led to a call to remove the material from the nation's classrooms.

Our specialist asbestos team know that after a diagnosis, patients want the best possible treatment options. It is for this reason that we adopt a holistic approach and run all of our asbestos-related claims on a no win-no fee basis, without making any deductions from clients’ compensation; this allows any claims to be used to organise the very best treatment and to support families if the worst should happen.
