Thompsons and Whittles are delighted to announce that from 1 May 2008 the two firms will be coming together to operate as one.

The combined firm - to be called Thompsons - unites two leading firms in personal injury and employment law.

The united firm builds on a shared pride in commitment to the trade union movement and reputation for providing quality legal services. We are, together, uniquely placed to provide even greater strength and depth to the trade union movement, leading with the highest standards and widest range of legal services, and with offices covering the whole of the UK.

For our expanded joint client base, the coming together of the firms will mean:

• a consolidated commitment to trade union legal services;
• support for the campaigns of more trade unions;
• even greater resources and access.

Integration will be a managed and gradual process with no disruption to services to trade unions or their members.
