Thomas is a partner in Freshfields’ antitrust, competition and trade practice group, which up until recently he led globally for six years. He now combines his dynamic and broad client practice with a new global role working closely with the firm’s leadership team on Freshfields’ growth agenda.

In client mandates, Thomas immerses himself in the business of his clients in order to provide innovative, tailored solutions to global antitrust issues. In leading our antitrust practice, he works with colleagues across the firm to apply our energy, thought leadership and values to stay on top of our game.

He advises on EU and international antitrust law, covering transactional and conduct matters as well as related litigation. Clients turn to Thomas for complex EU and international mandates, especially those requiring strategic management of cross-border challenges and parallel proceedings before several authorities. He brings international experience and perspective across all areas of antitrust risk and compliance in a wide range of industries, including the fast-moving digital economy. The nature of his work also involves leading teams of Freshfields lawyers and local counsel around the world.
