Established in the city for over 30 years, the Thompsons Newcastle office provides legal services to people across the whole of the North East of England and Cumbria and is currently Thompsons Solicitors' largest office.

Recommended by the Legal 500 for the quality of its personal injury work, the three specialist personal injury teams feature several members of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel and Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

The nationally renowned asbestos team is headed by Tony Hood in the Newcastle office and is at the forefront of pioneering asbestos litigation. The Newcastle office is also home to a specialist clinical negligence team headed by Janet Allan.

The Newcastle team wins, on average:

- Nearly 700 cases every year

- Just under £21.5 million in damages every year

- Almost £7 million in compensation for clients exposed to asbestos each year

The specialist teams act for victims of personal injury and industrial disease across the region and have been involved in numerous landmark decisions and test cases. Within the Newcastle office is an Employment Rights Unit and an Equal Pay Unit for the benefit of trade union members.

Thompsons Solicitors is the UK's most experienced personal injury firm with over 100 years of experience.
