Tom is a commercial lawyer with extensive experience as an in-house counsel. He has expertise in commercial contracts, insurance law, dispute resolution and corporate governance, with industry experience in general insurance and sport.
“I have spent the majority of my legal career in-house and love the unique variety, challenges and opportunities it presents as a lawyer. I have had the opportunity to work closely with company executives and boards in developing strategic direction, solving complex problems, and navigating often hectic (and ever changing) commercial landscapes. As general counsel of Basketball Australia, I developed the legal and compliance framework for the national sporting body and led negotiation of the WNBL collective bargaining agreement. I have also previously been involved in complex insurance litigation matters, led internal corporate investigations, handled end-to-end insurance claims and disputes, and worked closely with government and regulators on a variety of matters.”
