On 1 May 2009 Rowley Ashworth will join Thompsons to create a combined firm.

This represents a strengthened commitment to acting for trade unions and their members. The combined firm of Thompsons will have further strength in depth in resources and expertise to deliver the highest quality of service to claimants in personal injury cases and trade unions and their members in employment cases.

The firm has offices across the UK with specialist lawyers dedicated to fighting for those who have been injured, exposed to occupational disease or mistreated at work.

Stephen Cavalier, Chief Executive, said “When it comes to the question of who are the leading trade union law firms, we are in the top one”.
