Based in the historic Pearl Assurance House building, next to the Town Hall in Albert Square, Thompsons Solicitors' Manchester office has a long and proud association with the trade union movement.

Servicing both trade union members and private claimants, the office has a long-standing reputation for providing excellent client care and outstanding legal service.

Specialising in the full range of industrial diseases, the industrial disease team has been involved in recent high profile asbestos litigation test cases. The serious injuries team based in Manchester has represented claimants with catastrophic and serious head injuries and is affiliated with national charity, Headway. The accident and injury teams act on behalf of clients bringing a wide range of claims, from minor incidents through to complex, very serious accidents.

The employment rights team acts only on behalf of claimants and is consistently given top billing in the Legal 500 among trade union law firms. The Legal 500 Guide refers to the team as having a “stellar record in discrimination, victimisation and equal pay claims.”
