Occupational Disease

 

What our Occupational Disease Barristers offer

Kings Chambers prides itself on its expertise within the sphere of occupational disease litigation. Our specialist barristers have a particular focus on asbestos related lung conditions such as mesothelioma and lung cancers as well as claims involving exposure to other toxic or carcinogenic substances.  Members of the team have led the way in recent times in terms of the development of the law in the area of funding of immunotherapy treatment for mesothelioma victims. 

Barristers in this team regularly deliver seminars on the changing landscape of disease litigation and legal developments.

 

Who our Occupational Disease Barristers work for

Kings Chambers has an enviable reputation in this area of law and as such our specialist team of barristers work for many market leading law firms and insurers and are regularly involved in test litigation, putting Kings Chambers at the cutting edge of the development of law within this field. Several barristers in this team advise international organisations in both case specific scenarios as well as their long tail disease exposure domestically and in foreign jurisdictions. Landmark decisions such as Fairchild and the Pleural Plaques test litigation have involved Kings Chambers barristers.

The team provides national reach when dealing with cases and a prompt and efficient service whether it be drafting pleadings or meeting a client urgently in need of advice in their own home for a conference.
