Thompsons Solicitors have been working for the TUC and fighting for workers' rights since their inception. They are the biggest trade union law firm specialising in claims for compensation in cases involving workplace injuries and disputes. The firm has branches all over the UK and employs over 1000 people.
This book presents stories, events and campaigns: for compensation, for workers' entitlements and political cases: the Poplar Borough Council case, the Meerut Trials of 1929, and others from the 1920s and '30s, many involving members of the Labour and Communist parties.
It chronicles the development of the firm into the present and witnesses to Thompsons' involvement with the Labour Research Department and the NCCL - now Liberty.
