What can Tom do for you?

Tom is a commercial litigator with particular focus on the defence of professional negligence claims and advising insurers on claims and coverage issues across a range of policies, including commercial crime, cyber, D&O, FI, fidelity, PI and W&I. Tom also leads a growing and successful civil fraud and asset recovery team. There is often an international dimension to Tom’s work.

Supporting your ambitions

Tom’s growing civil fraud practice has arisen out of his years of work with professional services firms and their insurers, particularly as cybercrime becomes an increasing feature in business.

Reflective of his creative approach across all types of claim, Tom has created new and leading-edge law on obtaining Norwich Pharmacal disclosure orders against the police, freezing injunctions against "persons unknown", and permission to service proceedings by Facebook outside of the UK jurisdiction.

He has also helped an insurer client establish a “Friday Fraud Helpline” which recently won an innovation award from a leading global insurance broker.

What do others say?

Tom has been "Recommended" for Insurance and Reinsurance Litigation (Legal 500, 2017) and described as "very bright" (Legal 500 for Professional Indemnity, 2018). Clients have also described him as "incredibly bright and perfect for really complex cases" and, in relation to his fraud work, "Head and shoulders above anyone else”.

What else should you know?

Tom also plays an active role in supporting the health and well-being of colleagues at Mills & Reeve.
