Posted on: 27th January 2016

Leading London law firm Hodge Jones & Allen has strengthened its industrial disease team with the appointment of Senior Associate Andrew James.

Andrew brings with him over 30 years of experience in personal injury, with 25 of those focussing onasbestos and mesothelioma compensation and asbestos disease cases. He joins Hodge Jones & Allen following a highly successful four years as an industrial disease specialist at Slater & Gordon. Prior to this, Andrew spent time with Thompsons, Rowley Ashworth and Fentons.

He has acted on behalf of a diverse portfolio of clients, from asbestos charities in both the UK and Australia to families suffering from asbestos-linked bereavement.

Alongside his client work, Andrew is an APIL accredited specialist in occupational and asbestos disease. He also regularly attends and contributes to the Asbestos Sub-Committee of the All Party Parliamentary Group at the House of Commons.

Andrew brings with him a wealth of experience, particularly industrial disease, and his addition further strengthens our growing practice. Andrew’s expertise and sensitivity to what are often a unique set of challenges will be a real benefit to our team and will enable us to continue providing the very best support and advice to our clients and their families.”
