More about Thompsons Solicitors

Thompsons will only work for injured people and unlike most other solicitors, will never work for defendants or employers.

We are unable to help non-union members with employment rights cases and if you are not a Union member, see why you should join a Trade Union.

More information about our services for trade union members can be found on our Trade Union Legal Services information pages.
