Brigit Nolan

Senior Associate

Home / Staff Member / Brigit Nolan
I gain the trust of clients because of my empathy and care. My extensive asbestos disease experience gives clients confidence that they’re in safe hands.

Brigit has over 20 years of experience in personal injury litigation and has been specialising in asbestos-related diseases for the last 10 years.

She has a wealth of experience of dealing with all types of asbestos claims and leads a talented team in our Plymouth office.   She has a depth of knowledge which allows her to thoroughly investigate all aspects of asbestos exposure and to identify potential defendants and their insurers.

Brigit has a passion for helping families recover significant compensation for mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and pleural thickening.  She has a very empathetic approach and is genuinely inspired to help her clients at what is a very difficult time in their lives.  She is able to offer not only a first-class legal approach but compassion, understanding and the support required to help navigate through the legal process, obtain the best care and treatment possible, to rebuild lives and to achieve the best possible financial outcome.

As well as helping people who have been exposed to asbestos in their working life, Brigit has successfully pursued claims on behalf of people who have been affected by secondary asbestos exposure. This includes clients who have been diagnosed with asbestos disease due to hugging loved ones on their return home from work, and wives who have washed their husband’s overalls.


‘My late father and myself have dealt with Brigit Nolan over the last 22 months in relation to a mesothelioma claim which was successful and has now been finalised. Brigit was an incredible help and support throughout the claim to both my dad and myself and was attentive to the delicate nature and explained things in a thorough and concise manner and was always at the end of the phone or an email at anytime we had any questions or concerns. Thank you for everything Brigit.’ – Google review from a Novum Law client
