Thompsons Solicitors who represent union members of STUC affiliates has just chalked up its third major success in a row.
Chambers the legal directory rates Thompsons, who win over £50m in compensation for clients every year, in their highest category, Band 1.
The firm has a similar Band 1 rating from the Legal 500 law profession guide and was voted the Law firm of the Year in the Firm Magazine’s prestigious Law Awards of 2009.
In this year’s guide Chambers commends Frank Maguire, Thompsons’ senior partner for his “advocacy, client handling and management of catastrophic claims”.
Chambers also describes Thompsons as a ‘highly acclaimed practice’, and adds: “Now firmly entrenched in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen, this trade union favourite is lauded for being outstanding, tenacious and value for money”.
Mr Maguire said: “It is always good to know that our work is recognised in the profession but the views we value most are those of the trade union members and other clients we represent.
“The fact that we recover over £50m a year in compensation for clients speaks volumes about our dedication and commitment to winning the best possible settlement in every case we accept”.
