Tom’s instructions in 2024 include representing the leader of a paedophile hunter group in the Midlands; and a man of good character accused of sexual assault by multiple complainants. Tom’s recent prosecution instructions include robbery, affray and a two-handed fraud.

In the civil jurisdiction, Tom has a particular interest in the exercise of investigative powers and the civil recovery of the proceeds of crime. He has represented the Metropolitan Police in asset forfeiture applications brought under Part V of POCA.
