Tom is also an expert in jurisdictional issues, cross border enforcement of judgments and arbitral awards and the taking of evidence in cross border disputes.

Whilst Tom deals with disputes involving clients from many jurisdictions and in many sectors, he spends much of his time acting for clients from the CIS and Central and Eastern Europe and in the energy and natural resources sectors.
