Home / Staff Member / Lynn Yeates
Helping people with asbestos-related illnesses can be emotionally challenging at times but my clients are wonderful people and I feel privileged to help and represent them.

Since qualifying as a solicitor in 2000, Lynn has specialised solely in helping people with mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. She has considerable experience working on complex, high value compensation claims and has strong links with medical specialists, palliative care providers, support organisations and barristers.

Lynn has over 15 years’ experience working solely with people diagnosed with illnesses such as mesothelioma and other serious asbestos-related diseases.

She has represented people from all walks of life who through no fault of their own, have been exposed to asbestos in their daily lives. Previous successful compensation claims have included shipyard workers, railway engineers, oil refinery workers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, garage mechanics, shop fitters and office workers.

Lynn has a wealth of experience working on complex, high value cases and works closely with specialist respiratory consultants, lung cancer nurses and charities such as the asbestos support and awareness group, HASAG to help and support people with asbestos-related illnesses.

“Thank you so much for your help and support with this. It is so good that there are people like you and the ladies from HASAG who are helping and supporting us through our problems.” – Novum Law client


Lynn is an understanding and compassionate solicitor who is absolutely committed to helping people suffering ill health due to past asbestos exposure. She provides a personal but professional high level of individual service with clients describing her as ‘a friend at a time of crisis’ and someone who is kind, patient and supportive.

Lynn prides herself on her close working relationships with clients and their loved ones as well as the strong links she has built over the years with hospitals, trade unions, charities and support groups.
