Alison Fahy is an extremely experienced solicitor supervising Thompsons Solicitors’ lawyers who deal with multi-track claims where compensation is expected to be in excess of £25,000.

Based in the firm’s Birmingham office, with responsibility for the whole of the West Midlands, Alison supervises colleagues but also retains heavy involvement in individual cases.

With more than 20 years’ experience specialising in industrial disease claims, Alison has dealt with a wide range of cases, including those where she has represented clients with mesothelioma, a fatal disease caused by exposure to asbestos. Over the course of her long career, Alison has also represented the victims of road traffic accidents and those injured outside the workplace.

Alison has a successful track record in securing maximum compensation for her clients, taking great care to update her clients on any developments throughout the duration of their claim.

Alison takes great pride in sharing Thompsons’ values - particularly its policy of only ever representing those who have suffered an injury, as opposed to employers or insurers.

In her spare time Alison likes reading, going to the theatre, walking and keeping fit.
