Tom provides specialist commercial/IT law advice, focusing on the insurance and wider financial services sector.

In particular, Tom is sought out by clients for his in-depth experience and specialist knowledge of product distribution and outsourcing arrangements in the insurance industry, both in the Lloyd's and Companies Market.

As competition in the insurance market intensifies, participants are continually searching for new routes to market and ways to engage with and retain customers and drive efficiencies. Technology, innovation and the use of specialist third parties are increasingly at the heart of these developments – and Tom has been at the forefront of the industry's efforts in these areas, advising on some of the largest affinity partnership deals in the market, helping to establish the insurance as a utility distribution model and putting in place key and innovative insurance outsourcing arrangements.

During his time at the firm, Tom has undertaken a successful secondment to a well-known international insurance group and worked for global insurance clients in both the firm’s Dubai and London offices.
