Tom joined the practice in July 2013 and completed his professional qualifications in September 2018. In his spare time, Tom has joined a Krav Maga self-defence class, although he is convinced that the classes put him through more pain than he will ever encounter in the real world. Tom is a keen traveller, preferring adventure over relaxation, and would more likely be seen hiking a trail than lounging by a pool.Linkedin
