I studied philosophy at the University of Durham before first qualifying as a Barrister from Inns of Court School of Law and thereafter cross-qualifying as a solicitor.
As a litigation specialist, my practice covers commercial and general litigation including contractual disputes and insurance disputes, claims in tort, property law, landlord and tenant, private matrimonial and contentious probate. I act for both private individuals and commercial organisations of all shapes and sizes, my experience being gained in both large international city firms as well as smaller regional firms.
Outside of work I enjoy cycling, golf, rugby (more watching rather than playing these days) and adventure sports, in particular backcountry skiing as and when I can find the time to make it to the slopes.
"Tom has a very good manner, excellent professionalism and excellent knowledge of his specialist areas of law. He is very responsive and trustworthy." Client
"I was most impressed by and appreciated the commercial approach taken by Thomas. He is able to understand our needs on a commercial level and tailor his advice and the solutions he offers to meet those needs. Thomas is also great at providing simple solutions to complex problems and liaising with us and our other commercial advisers to ensure that the whole team is working under a unified strategy with the same goals. This enables us to deal with problems quickly as they arise and not lose sight of the big picture. I would recommend Thomas." Client
"Litigation is never something you want to enter into lightly, but Thomas has the ability to get to grips with the facts of a case quickly and provide clear and professional advice, enabling us to pursue a course of action targeted at producing our desired outcome. Thomas Middlehurst is an excellent commercial litigator with a solid background in property law. His outstanding qualities are his ability to communicate effectively with clients in dealing with complicated cases and to progress matters with minimal input. There are some very good lawyers I work with, but Thomas stands out on the litigation side." Client
