At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

Frank Maguire

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Frank Maguire, (4th October 1955 - 17th September 2011) was an award-winning Scottish lawyer and a tenacious campaigner for the victims of injustice.

He joined Thompsons Solicitors, then known as Robin Thompson & Partners, as a trainee straight out of Aberdeen University, and remained there throughout his working life.

He was appointed a Solicitor Advocate in 1994 and became joint managing partner of the firm in 2006, helping it to achieve five consecutive legal awards between 2008 and 2011. Maguire was the recipient of one of these awards himself, being named Solicitor of the Year at The Firm Magazine’s Scottish Law Awards in 2010.

Throughout the course of his career, Frank fought hard to improve the rights of the sick, injured and vulnerable. He represented miners during the miners’ strikes, victims of the Piper Alpha Disaster, victims of asbestos exposure and haemophiliacs infected with Hepatitis C and HIV.

He was successfully involved in many campaigns to bring about legal reform, and appeared in many landmark cases.

Since his death, many deserved tributes have been paid to Frank by clients, colleagues, legal practitioners, politicians and trade union leaders, all affirming his passion and single-minded determination in the cause of justice and fair treatment.
