Boyes Turner’s Mesothelioma and Asbestos Disease Claims team is working on behalf of a man named John Breslin, who was diagnosed with the asbestos related cancer, mesothelioma, in October last year (2022).

He worked for Gee Walker and Slater Limited in Aylesbury between the years 1972 and 1975. The company is appealing for help from anyone who may have worked there as a carpenter or foreman of office blocks/insurance companies and who worked alongside John in particular.

Boyes Turner partner, Laura Magson, said: “We are looking to speak to any of John’s former colleagues who can shed light on how John came into contact with asbestos during his career. It would be helpful to speak to anyone who worked for Gee Walker & Slater Limited at the same time as they may have useful information.”If you think you might be able to assist, contact Laura on 0118 952 7114.
