Tom became a member of Chambers in October 2013 following successful completion of his pupillage. He was awarded a scholarship by Inner Temple and undertook the BPTC at Nottingham Law School. He is registered with the Bar Council to undertake public access work and is able to receive instructions from lay clients, as well as those on the traditional professional client basis. Tom has a general civil practice and is a member of all practice groups at Ropewalk Chambers. He appears regularly in the county courts and the High Court and is developing a strong paperwork practice. In addition, Tom is regularly instructed by the Home Office to deal with immigration appeals. Through this line of work he has experience in areas traditionally beyond the remit of peers at a similar call, such as cross-examining expert witnesses. He brings these skills to all areas of his practice.
