Legal executive Keely specialises in industrial disease claims and handles cases throughout the Yorkshire and Humberside region from Thompsons Solicitors’ Leeds branch.

Beginning work at Thompsons at 17-years-old, Keely has worked at the firm for three decades, two of which have been spent exclusively on personal injury claims.

Before moving to the Industrial Disease Team, Keely spent 17 years working on fast track accident cases, mainly dealing with accident at work and occupiers liability cases.

The most rewarding thing about working for Thompsons for Keely is the successful conclusion of claims and knowing the right result has been achieved for the client.

Keely's case experience

Public liability claim: Keely’s client tripped due to defective paving and sustained a broken ankle. A claim was submitted against the council. The council admitted liability and Keely secured £20,000 for her client.

Accident at work claim: Keely's client sustained an injury to his shoulder due to the repeated manual lifting of extremely heavy carpets during the course of his employment as a delivery driver. The employer admitted breach of duty. Keely secured £15,000 for her client.


Keely’s former client, Mrs Morgan, said: “Keely Goldup dealt with my claim under reference and I would have no hesitation in recommending the service to any of my colleagues. I thought the service was excellent. I was given clear guidelines of time and expectations. My mind has been set at ease and I have received a very acceptable payment in settlement.”

Another of Keely’s former clients, Mr Jackson, said: “A personal thank you to Keely. Excellent service, always kept in the loop, would recommend your company.”
