Lisa Ellis


  • I began my training at BLM and upon qualification joined the Occupational Disease team.
  • I specialise in short-tail occupational disease claims, including work-related upper limb disorders, cumulative back injuries, occupational asthma and dermatitis. I have experience of handling claims involving allegations of stress, bullying and harassment. I also deal with cases involving legionnaire’s disease and occupational cancers.  As well as advising in individual claims, I have experience of group litigation.
  • I am the lead of BLM's Musculo-skeletal Subject Matter Group, one of a number of SMGs which ensure the development and sharing of in-depth and market-leading subject matter expertise.
  • I advise clients across all industry sectors and work directly with policyholders on claim prevention and defensibility. I also provide training to clients on short-tail disease topics and have been involved in organising and delivering a mock trial on behalf of a client to its employees.
  • I work with clients who operate in different jurisdictions with the assistance of partner firms in Global Insurance Law Connect, of which BLM is a founder member.
