Legal services for Unite the Union members and their families

Unite the Union

Allan McDougall Solicitors has been working for Unite the Union members and their families throughout Scotland for many decades.

We are a law firm with a rich heritage that remains true to our founder’s values: litigation pursued to a very high standard, with a strong track record of fighting for the rights of workers and delivering outstanding service and results.

Our personal injury team, one of the largest in the country, handles over 1,000 cases each year, recovering millions of pounds in compensation for clients. Our market-leading employment law team has extensive experience in all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment law. Our highly experienced family law team covers a wide spectrum of family matters, including separation and divorce, care arrangements for children, cohabitation, and pre or post-nuptial agreements.

How we help Unite members

As panel solicitors for Unite Legal Services, we act for Unite members free of charge when you need legal advice for:

Personal injury compensation claims

  • Accidents at or away from work, including on holiday.
  • Workplace injuries such as industrial deafness and repetitive strain injuries.
  • Industrial diseases such as asbestos-related illnesses and vibration white finger.
  • Road traffic and cycle accidents.
  • Public liability and occupiers liability claims.
  • Medical and dental negligence.

We also offer members' families a free service for all personal injury claims aside from injuries sustained at work.

Employment issues

  • Settlement agreements.
  • Unlawful deductions from wages.
  • Holiday pay issues.
  • Unfair dismissal.
  • Redundancy.
  • Discrimination.
  • Maternity and paternity rights.
  • And other employment issues.

As a Unite member, you and your family members will not be charged a success fee. This means that you will receive 100% of any compensation. Note that many other law firms that are not panel solicitors for Unite Legal Services will retain a significant percentage (as high as 30%) of your settlement.

Family matters

We provide our family law services at a reduced rate for members.
