We are delighted to announce our inaugural Annual Asbestos Seminar.

The Seminar will be held on 5th April 2017 from 2pm to 6pm, at the Courthouse Hotel in Shoreditch http://www.shoreditch.courthouse-hotel.com/, followed by a drinks reception.

The event will be chaired by Harry Steinberg QC and will include talks from:

  • Mavis Nye: the survivor’s perspective
  • Brendan Tully: a leading New York attorney, on asbestos litigation and product liability in the US, and what UK lawyers need to know
  • Michael Rawlinson QC and Gemma Scott: on the ongoing Cape/Concept 70 litigation

There will also be talks on low level-asbestos exposure, medical and legal aspects of the new wave of immunotherapy, and recent developments (and new thoughts) on dependency claims.

We will be asking for a £25 minimum donation for the event, with all proceeds going to the Mavis Nye foundation, supporting mesothelioma victims and their families.

If you are interested in attending please RSVP to William Brown at wbrown@12kbw.co.uk by 1 March 2017.
