Thompsons was founded with a vision to be the leading legal advisers to the trade union and Labour movement and to stand up for the injured or mistreated. We refused then, as we do now, to act for insurance companies or employers, giving us a unique perspective and commitment to claimants.
Since our foundation in 1921, we have taken a central role in fighting alongside trade unions to protect and improve workplace safety standards and employment rights.
For 100 years, we have used our specialist expertise to protect the rights and interests of millions of trade union members across the UK, campaign for justice and equality and also use our affiliations with the global trade union movement to show international solidarity in defence of civil liberties and human rights across the world.
Legal support for trade union members
Thompsons is very proud to deliver bespoke packages of specialist legal services to millions of UK trade union members, to support them with free, independent advice and representation on issues which matter most to working people.
