Welcome to Lawyers4Unions

Pattinson & Brewer and Beecham Peacock, two of the UK's most respected Trade Union law firms, have joined forces to bring together over 170 years' experience of fighting for justice for working people.  We provide unrivalled legal support to both Unions and their members across the UK. We don't cut corners. We don't compromise. We are 100% committed to the Labour & Trade Union Movement.

Our Values

Ordinary working people can have 'equality of arms' when taking on their employer, big businesses and well funded insurance companies, by being a member of a Trade Union. If the Con Dem coalition gets its way, access to justice for millions of working people will be substantially restricted. We believe that having access to justice is a basic human right - we're fighting alongside you to defend access to justice.

Services for Unions

With over 170 years' experience of supporting Trade Unions, we understand the challenges faced by Unions today.  Our lawyers draw on a heritage which stretches back to the 1901 Taff Vale case and the formation of the TGWU in 1922. We specialise in providing Head Office support on Rule Book, balloting and Industrial Action procedures. We stand with you in the face of legal challenges.

Services for Union Members

Every day we meet ordinary working people who tell us about the challenges they are facing - following an injury, because of mistreatment in the workplace or because they need a lawyer to help with a personal issue or problem. We are here to help. We offer a 'cradle to grave' service with dedicated teams of lawyers who are committed to representing you.

Today, Parliament considers the third reading of the Mesothelioma Bill and so I thought it would be appropriate to update on my last comment, which coincided with the second reading of the Bill.
