Tom acts for a number of major insurers and self-retained companies dealing with a full range of employers’ and public liability claims.
He deals with fatal accident claims and catastrophic injury claims including those involving spinal injuries, brain injuries, complex regional pain syndrome and alleged psychiatric injuries.

Tom has a particular interest in representing defendants subject to insolvency proceedings, whether that be administration, liquidation or once finally dissolved.
Tom is valued by his clients for his sympathy with their overall claims philosophy and his commercial nous, recognising at an early stage which claims are to be fought and which are to be settled.
