Thompsons’ Llanelli office was established by the late Jeffrey Parsons as J.M. Parsons & Co, and continues to trade under this name to this day. Jeffrey started the firm with the aim of supporting power plant and steel workers in Wales who were suffering from industrial diseases, including asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma. Amanda who works there today trained with Jeffrey.
As the UK’s leading trade union law firm who also ran the first asbestos case to the House of Lords in 1972, Thompsons welcomed J.M. Parsons & Co into the firm in 2016. Together the firms have acted for thousands of workers and have led the field in obtaining justice for asbestos victims across Wales and beyond.
