At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

I turned even redder today when I heard the news today that John Lewis plead guilty to breaching the asbestos regulations only one year ago.

Despite numerous campaigns to highlight the dangers of asbestos in the workplace, John Lewis allowed staff to continue to work refurbishing its store in Edinburgh when the alarm was raised that asbestos was likely to be present.

I deal with thousands of compensation claims a year for those with asbestosis, pleural plaques and fatal mesothelioma – all contracted through employer’s negligence in exposing its employees to asbestos fibres.

Both John Lewis and contractor Morris & Spottiswood pled guilty to breaches of the control of Asbestos Regulations 2006 and the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations.

Both companies will be sentenced next month.
