Practice Overview

Thomas has a strong commercial / chancery practice with particular emphasis on pensions, insolvency and commercial litigation (including IT matters). He has been recommended as a leading junior by The Legal 500 and Chambers UK for several years.

He has been nominated as “Insolvency / Restructuring Junior of the Year” at the Chambers UK Bar Awards and was ‘highly commended’ in Legal Week’s “Stars at the Bar”.

His six month placement with the commercial litigation department of a firm in Guernsey at the outset of his practice gave him experience of off-shore litigation as well as direct exposure to a wide range of clients.

Thomas has been recommended in the legal directories for a number of years. Recent entries include: “highly competent – he’s undoubtedly going to go a long way” (Restucturing / Insolvency, Chambers & Partners 2017); “He’s very considered, level-headed and a good strategist.” “He’s very good in court; he’s very calm and won’t be pushed around” (Pensions, Chambers & Partners 2017); “One of the best pensions regulatory lawyers in the field” (Legal 500 2016); “He is brilliant and he grows in strength all the time.” (Pensions, Chambers & Partners 2016); “He’s shown himself to be very bright – he can pick up any issue you throw at him, is very pragmatic and is great on his feet and at providing opinions.” (Restructuring / Insolvency, Chambers & Partners 2016); “Bright, hard-working, unflappable and possessed of much common and commercial sense.” “He is a star in the making as he’s very bright and is able to get through a huge workload to cut to the issues quite quickly.” (IT, Chambers & Partners, 2016) “knows his way around pensions law like the back of his hand.” “He’s very, very bright and a good advocate” (Pensions, Chambers & Partners 2015); “He combines a surefooted academic approach with a practical slant.” (Restructuring / Insolvency – Chambers UK and Chambers Global 2015) “Intelligent, responsive and with a good client manner.” (Insolvency – Legal 500 2014) “One of the cleverest juniors around.” (Pensions – Legal 500 2014; “He is eloquent on his feet and has a good court presence” (Restructuring/Insolvency – Chambers UK 2014 and Chambers Global 2014); “Tom is first-rate in relation to his written advice” (IT & Telecoms, Chambers & Partners 2014); someone who “brings the exceptional attention to detail that you need on IT disputes” (IT & Telecoms, Chambers & Partners 2013).
