Why Choose Larcomes?

At Larcomes, we care...

Larcomes Industrial Diseases team has specialised since the late 1980’s, in representing asbestos disease sufferers and their families in dealing with compensation claims for mesothelioma, asbestos related pleural thickening, asbestosis and asbestos related lung cancer. Larcomes charge no upfront fees and work on a “no win, no fee” basis and the team have achieved many hundreds of settlements for those suffering from all types of asbestos related illnesses.  

We understand that sufferers may find it difficult to come to the office to meet us in person at such a stressful time, so we will always offer home visits to sufferers and their families across the UK.

What our clients and legal directories say about us

‘I first met Richard Hopgood with my parents during my late father’s early stages of illness. Richard often came to my parents’ home to work with my father on his claim and so became a familiar face within the family. I will always value Richard’s professionalism, the care he showed towards my parents and, above all, his friendship.’

- JM

‘Richard Hopgood is an experienced litigator with an in-depth knowledge of asbestos claims. He also has an excellent rapport with clients, which is particularly important in this area of work where many of the claims are terminal or fatal’
