Introduction

Tom has a commercial, professional negligence and insurance practice.  He receives instructions from a variety of banks, mortgage companies, insurers and commercial enterprises, both as a sole advocate and as a junior.  Tom’s workload comprises high-value, complex cases – a reflection of his clients’ high regard for his robust advocacy and commercially minded advice, often on technical matters.

Tom is accredited to accept instructions from members of the public on a direct access basis.

In his spare time Tom is a keen cricketer and golfer. He plays cricket for the Bar of England and Wales, mostly in the biennial Lawyers Cricket World Cup.  Tom's last tournament (his third) took place in Brisbane, with 12 teams of lawyers from around the world taking part.
