Tom is a Senior Associate Solicitor at Bolt Burdon Kemp and the Coordinator for the Costs & Funding group at APIL, specialising in costs litigation since 2012.
He has a strong understanding of costs related law, enabling him to articulate and apply this knowledge either in written pleadings or when advocating at court. Tom closely monitors the latest changes in the legal landscape, which can often provide the upper hand in his work. He regularly prepares skeleton arguments on highly technical points of law and advocates in the High Court of Justice and Senior Courts Costs Office. Tom has significant experience of appeals, challenging judicial decisions. These appeal decisions have developed the law on several key issues such as costs management orders, switches in litigation funding, the provisional assessment procedure, CPR 36 (offers of settlement), fixed costs and qualified one way costs shifting (also referred to commonly as QOCS).
