Thompson Smith and Puxon (TSP) is a Legal 500 Top Tier recommended firm for its Employment Law practice. We are also recommended by the Legal 500 as a leading firm in an additional seven practice areas.

What is the Legal 500? Primarily a reference tool for buyers of legal services, the Legal 500 has developed over the past 25 years into the largest and most in depth survey of the UK legal market, with researchers analysing the practices of more than 1,000 law firms across the UK.
