After bringing the first-ever successful asbestos claim to the House of Lords in 1972, Thompsons Solicitors’ expert lawyers have fiercely defended tens of thousands of people in compensation claims against those responsible for exposing them, or their loved ones, to asbestos.
Thompsons Solicitors is the UK’s leading trade union law firm and, since its foundation in 1921, has campaigned alongside union clients to raise awareness of the ongoing legacy of asbestos-related illness, helping those affected by mesothelioma, asbestosis, pleural thickening and asbestos-related lung cancer to pursue compensation claims against unscrupulous employers and insurance companies. This includes tracing companies that have long-since gone out of business or have been incorporated under different names. As a matter of principle, we have never and will never act on behalf of insurers or companies, and that is our pledge to you.
Whether you belong to a trade union member or not, Thompsons Solicitors’ specialist asbestos team will fully support you through every step of your claim, providing expert legal advice as well as access to a specialist network of support services and medical professionals along the way.
