Ashtons Legal joins forces with Meso UK

Ashtons Legal is supporting Mesothelioma UK as a new bronze sponsor. Ashtons has been acting for people with asbestos-related problems for over 20 years and has secured compensation for many people who were exposed, either directly or indirectly, to asbestos.

The firm is also proud to have been involved in the formation of the Anglia Asbestos Disease Support Group, which was established for individuals in East Anglia suffering the effects of exposure to asbestos. This group was set up in 2016 in conjunction with Mesothelioma UK and meets on a monthly basis in Norwich and Bury St Edmunds. The group is open to patients, carers, family members, medical professionals and others experts working with sufferers and aims to give members an increased quality of life.

Phoebe Osborne from Ashtons’ Asbestos Disease team said:
“I’m really proud of all that we are working towards in supporting Mesothelioma UK, their amazing nurses and we are grateful to them in return for supporting our campaign in East Anglia – it is a real privilege to work with the team there.”

Ashtons Legal is spearheading a fundraising campaign to employ a specialist mesothelioma nurse at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital. To read more about the project go to
