Tom joined Baines Wilson LLP as a trainee in 2009 and qualified in July 2011. Tom graduated in Business Law at Bournemouth University in 2006 and completed the Legal Practice Course at the University of Central Lancashire in 2009. In between the academic stages of his career, Tom worked for a training company in South Cumbria delivering training that covered a range of business issues.

Tom is married and lives in Carlisle. Away from work, Tom spends too much time watching Formula 1 and also enjoys the odd round of golf.

Absolutely delighted with Tom’s professionalism in dealing with this matter. His support was invaluable, at what proved to be an extremely stressful time for our small business. He gave me the confidence to deal with the matter in a very efficient and professional manner. Huge thanks. So grateful. We have recommended your service to many others.
