He is frequently instructed to act in complex and significant international disputes (including shipping, commodities, joint venture, partnership, construction, banking and finance, insolvency, information technology and insurance cases). He was appointed to the Welsh Government B Panel of Junior Counsel (Public Law) in 2017 and to the Attorney General’s C Panel of Civil Counsel from March 2019.

He regularly appears in the Business and Property Courts, Administrative Court, First-Tier Tribunal and international arbitrations (including those conducted under LCIA, ICC, LMAA, UNCITRAL, SCC, SIAC, AIAC and DIFC-LCIA Rules, as well as ad hoc).

Tom’s cases often involve a foreign applicable law (including the laws of China, Singapore, Malaysia, Russia, Norway, the UAE and Venezuela), jurisdictional issues and global clients.

He previously worked as the Judicial Assistant to Lord Mance in the UK Supreme Court, and as the editor of the official law reports for various offshore jurisdictions.
