Tom is an associate in the Guernsey office's dispute resolution team. He regularly assists with the large financial services-based litigation and trust disputes for which the firm is well known.

"I'm approachable with an eye for detail and real interest in what clients want out of a situation. Because of this I've found that my clients speak fully and openly with me, which in turn allows me to do more for them."

His practice extends beyond these matters, though, touching on a range of contentious and non-contentious areas for clients in Guernsey and abroad.

Tom has recently advised on a host of debt recovery matters, property disputes and nuisance claims and has hands-on experience of the full range of resolution options available to clients – from early mediation to trial.

Tom's non-contentious work includes employment and local housing licence advice (to both employers and employees) as well as licensing advice to individual landlords and the hospitality industry in the Bailiwick.
