Laura’s professional biography

With over 15 years of specialist experience representing people with mesothelioma, Laura leads Boyes Turner’s highly regarded mesothelioma and asbestos disease claims team known for its “unrivalled quality and ability for asbestos disease claims in the Thames Valley area- the “go to firm” (Legal 500 She also applies her extensive legal expertise and exceptional client care to represent severely injured victims and the bereaved dependent families of those with fatal injuries.

Laura works hard to conclude mesothelioma cases during a claimant’s lifetime and has obtained sizeable sums within months of instruction, but also obtained Court orders for provision of future private treatment costs such as immunotherapy that may not be available on the NHS so her clients have the security of knowing any future treatments will be funded. When it is not possible to conclude the case during a client’s life-time Laura supports the families to complete the claim on the deceased’s behalf.

Her compassion and commitment to making a difference for her clients results in a persistence which enables her to succeed in heavily defended or difficult cases.

Laura is a recognised asbestos disease expert, accredited as a “leading industrial disease lawyer” (Legal 500 2021) with an excellent and well-deserved reputation and has given live interviews on BBC Radio about mesothelioma and the implications of the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme. She is an outspoken campaigner dedicated to using her knowledge to raise public awareness and make a difference, for example through her work with local asbestos groups.

Her mesothelioma clients come to her from all over the UK and abroad and from a variety of trades and occupations. Her track record of successful claims includes cases arising from low-level exposure, environmental exposure to asbestos from living near an asbestos factory or from breathing in dust from the clothes of family members.

Laura takes pro-active steps to secure settlements for asbestos-related disease claimants during their lifetime wherever possible and where there is a risk of future serious deterioration, she obtains provisional damages awards which preserve the claimant’s right to come back to court for further compensation in the event that the specified deterioration occurs.  She succeeds in complex cases involving multiple defendants.

She has both the compassion and legal expertise needed to obtain justice and compensation for sufferers and bereaved families and negotiates voluntary repayments of end of life care costs for hospices which nurse her clients. She personally supports asbestos disease sufferers at support groups coffee mornings and charity events. She also gives regular presentations and training to health care professionals throughout the country.

Away from the office Laura helps raise awareness and funds for the charities and support groups that help sufferers of asbestos-related and other diseases. Her fundraising exploits having included abseiling down The Blade, a skyscraper in Reading, the height of 32 double decker buses, in aid of a children’s hospice, Naomi House and a 25km Thames Path Challenge walk for Mesothelioma UK.

Laura is an accredited Senior Litigator and Asbestos Disease Specialist with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
