Thompsons - Legal help
Thompsons Solicitors are the most experienced national specialist personal injury practice in the country with over 800 staff in a network of offices nationwide. Thompsons will only work for an injured member of the public and unlike some other solicitors, will never work for insurance companies or employers.
At Thompsons Solicitors, we are also proud to help members of Trade Unions with not only personal injury compensation claims but also with matters relating to employment rights such as pensions, dismissals, discriminations, equal pay and transfer of undertaking (TUPE).
