Thompsons Solicitors has been providing expert legal advice and representation to the people of South and Mid Wales since our Cardiff office was established over 50 years ago. 

Thompsons is the UK’s leading law firm for trade union members. We have worked closely with Wales' industrial and mining communities throughout our long history, fighting for better working conditions for Welsh workers. We have acted for tens of thousands of miners, steelworkers and trade union members throughout Wales. 

We continue to work with the trade union movement and the Welsh Labour government to champion the rights of workers and the injured across Wales.

The specialist teams in our Cardiff office have significant experience of supporting current and former trade union members with a range of legal matters, including employment disputes, accident at work claims, personal injury claims, medical negligence claims, and industrial disease and asbestos claims. We also have a dedicated criminal law team based in the Welsh capital.

Praise from the Legal 500

The 'responsive and approachable' team at Thompsons Solicitors LLP derives most of its claimant personal injury work as a result of its deeply embedded union ties. The team benefits from 'experienced solicitors in a wide range of fields with expertise spanning many years', including the 'excellent' Amanda Jones, who manages the asbestos sub-group and 'pragmatic and well-prepared' associate Anthony Welsh , who manages the multi-track accident team in Cardiff.

"The attention to detail is high, as is the level of client care."

"This is a very good team devoted to client care within a large catchment area."
