The UK's most experienced trade union law firm, Thompsons Solicitors, is expanding its presence in Derbyshire following a merger with Whittles Solicitors.

Representatives of the firm are at Chesterfield Labour Club's annexe, 113 Saltergate, Chesterfield - and is open from 9.30am - 4.00pm every Monday, Thursday and Friday. Thompsons Solicitors represent members from a wide range of trade unions including Unite, GMB, UNISON, PCS, FBU and others. 

The merger means that trade union members can expect the same excellent service as they have enjoyed in the past, but with a more personal and local touch. All personal injury claims are dealt with on a genuine 'no win - no fee' arrangement, and advice sessions are free of charge.

John Knight, from Thompsons Solicitors, will be on hand to advise any member. He explains: “Clearly not all lawyers offer the same quality of service. Thompsons Solicitors has a proud history of representing injured workers for over 80 years. We are pleased to provide a locally-based service for union members and the wider community in Derbyshire. I look forward to meeting more of the local community over the coming weeks.”
