Tom qualified in 2008 and has been an employment law specialist since. Tom has experience of advising on the full range of both contentious and non-contentious employment issues affecting businesses of all sizes and in all sectors.
He is well-versed in matters surrounding the termination of employment, discrimination and whistleblowing, and transactional issues including TUPE and restructure. As such, he is frequently instructed to negotiate terminations of senior employees and executives, advise on potential discriminatory impacts of decisions and policies, or to assist the Corporate and Restructuring team on the pre- and post-transfer employment implications of sales and purchases of businesses.
Tom also has a wealth of experience of conducting litigation in the employment tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal. He regularly appears as advocate in complex multi-day hearings.
Tom offers a practical and commercial approach to the most complicated of employment problems and quickly recognises and narrows the issues to provide the most effective solution.
We find that the Forbes team take a pragmatic and supportive approach and enjoy working with their team.
