Background

Based in Llanelli, Kim works in the asbestos team dealing with claims from across the South West and Wales.

Many of Kim’s clients have lung cancer or mesothelioma but there are also clients with non-malignant asbestos conditions

Kim is always very aware that her clients need prompt, clear and concise advice. She seeks to pass on her skills in the supervision of a trainee solicitor at the firm.

Being part of a team is a big part of being at Thompsons and Kim likes it that the team is focussed solely on claimants and never insurers or employers.

When she is not working, Kim reads, enjoys photography and is getting into Geneaology
