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.

The aim of the campaign is to prevent Scot’s being denied an opportunity to raise an action in court because they cannot afford it.

At the moment, raising a civil case, such as child custody, divorce, housing dispute or a medical malpractice action requires to be largely funded by the person raising the action.  In practice 70% of the case is funded by the individual and the rest by the state.  Current plans are in motion to make your average civil litigant pay 100% of their court costs.

A seismic shift is taking place in our justice system which will radically affect the public’s access to our courts.  It’s a change that has crept up on all of us, the public, the legal profession and even MSPs, without the issue ever being properly aired or debated in the Parliament.  The fundamental shift is that we are to no longer to see our justice system as a public service provided by the State for us all but instead one founded upon the ability to pay and therefore more available to those who can pay. 

Thompsons Solicitors recent success as Law Firm of the Year was achieved through three of the firm’s fundamental and guiding principles: developing and investing in it’s staff; consolidating existing client bases and constantly improving services to those clients; and growth into new areas through winning new clients.
