The interests of Fire Brigades Union (FBU) members and their families are protected by a comprehensive package of legal services.
The FBU legal service is provided by Thompsons, the UK’s only law firm uniquely dedicated to trade unions.
Because you give 100%, we make sure you always get 100%.
FBU members using the legal service provided by Thompsons keep 100% of their compensation – whatever the injury and however complex the claim. By comparison, claims companies and high street law firms will take up to 25% of your damages.
