Hodge Jones & Allen
Isobel Lovett is a Partner and Head of Industrial Disease at HJA. Along with her colleague Andrew James they have a combined experience of over 50 years working for victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases.
The team works with clients who have suffered as a result of asbestos exposure obtaining compensation and in some cases, funding for novel treatments not available on the NHS. Isobel recently obtained compensation for her client who was forced to retire from their role early due to developing mesothelioma. Fighting on behalf of her client, she obtained an early judgement and secured interim payments to pay for her client to receive costly immunotherapy treatment. The case settled for a six figure sum with an agreement future treatment costs would also be paid as needed.
Andrew has also secured compensation awards for numerous clients whose civil claims couldn’t proceed as the employers and their insurers had gone out of business or couldn’t be traced; a common problem in mesothelioma claims due to the long latency period of the disease. By making applications to the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme, in suitable cases, Andrew has successfully obtained early payments for his clients who would otherwise be deprived of compensation for their illness.

As a historic trade union firm, Simpson Millar – a Fairpoint PLC Company – 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.
