Thomas has a strong commercial / chancery practice with particular emphasis on pensions, insolvency and commercial litigation and arbitration. 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. In this year’s edition of Chambers & Partners, he is described as “a great strategist and very hard-working”, “has a good court manner” and “very able and easy to work with” as well as being “very thorough” and having “great attention to detail.” “His advocacy is fantastic”. In The Legal 500 2021, Thomas is highlighted for being “very enjoyable, pleasant to work with and impressive in meetings with clients.” Another says that Thomas “has never appeared without having complete mastery of his papers and his arguments and is always quick on his feet.”
Past entries include: “An excellent junior with a very collegiate approach.” “He’s incredibly tenacious and a really good opponent. He’s straight with his arguments and very, very impressive.” (Chancery Commercial, Chambers & Partners 2020) “A skilled advocate and negotiator who consistently provides clear, pragmatic legal advice.” “Super-bright.” (Pensions, Chambers & Partners 2019); “Has a very efficient, linear mind, and structures his arguments extremely well.” “He’s extremely bright and makes everything easy to work through, even if it’s complex – nothing rattles him.

He is very confident, persuasive and takes a very commercial approach.” (Restructuring / Insolvency, Chambers & Partners 2019) “A shrewd junior who is an excellent team player” (IT & Telecoms, Legal 500 2019). “An outstanding team player with a really astute commercial ability” (Insolvency, Legal 500 2019). “He is highly intelligent and excellent on his feet” (Pensions, Legal 500 2019).
