Profile: Property

Experience and Expertise

Tom has substantial experience of property litigation, once being described by the Lawyer as the first-choice barrister where the opposition was unscrupulous. He appeared recently in the Privy Council on appeal from the Bahamas Court of Appeal, on a case, Rolle Family Co Ltd v. Rolle [2018] AC 205, involving competing claims to two valuable sea-front plots of land. He overturned the grounds of the Court of Appeal’s decision, establishing the legal principles which should enable his client to enforce his title in the Bahamas. He has particular expertise in restrictive covenants, easements and proprietary estoppel claims, having appeared in the Court of Appeal in each of these fields.
