Tom practices from Blackstone Chambers, where he has been since getting tenancy in 1995. Tom practices in EU, public, regulatory and commercial law, thanks in no small part to the assistance provided by a Queen Mother scholarship and then, when in practice, the Peter Bristow scholarship which enabled him to work in the EU institutions for nearly a year. Before the bar Tom studied law at Trinity, Oxford and obtained an LLM from the European University Institute in Florence. Tom took silk in 2012 and was the Chair of the Bar European Group from 2011-2013, of which (along with ALBA) he remains a committee member. Outside the law, Tom’s interests include walking, fishing and wine (ideally all in one day).
