The main focus of Tom's practice has been professional negligence claims in relation to claims brought against a broad range of professionals but in the main solicitors, accountants and surveyors.
He also has acted for insurers for many years in relation to disputes over coverage and is now able to use that experience to assist policyholders who may have had their cover declined.
He has also handled a large range of commercial disputes, which have included partnership and shareholder disputes, landlord and tenant matters, boundary disputes and contract claims.
Outside of the office
Tom played rugby until he should have known better and now continues to enjoy watching rugby. He also plays golf badly and tennis less badly. He has recently welcomed Willow a Golden Retriever puppy into his life who he hopes to train to find his lost golf balls.
I was impressed at how readily grasped the issues in the case and showed such commitment throughout. I particularly appreciated the steadiness and reassurance that you were able to give me through your experience and expertise. I always felt confident that the case was in the most capable hands. I will always be very grateful to you, and to Bethany.
