Contentious Experience:

Thomas also has experience providing pre-dispute strategic advice and assisting on fast track and multi track disputes in the Technology and Construction Court along with alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation, negotiation, and adjudication.

Thomas' recent contentious experience includes:
