Tom Broomfield’s practice is centred on financial crime. He prosecutes and defends as a sole and led junior in a wide range of white collar matters that often attract wide spread publicity.
He is frequently instructed by the FCA to prosecute criminal insider dealing offences, advising in such cases from an early stage of the investigation to conclusion. He has appeared in some of the highest profile criminal prosecutions brought by the FCA, including R v Dodgson and others (Operation Tabernula), R v Lyttleton and most recently R v Abdel-Malek and Choucair. He is currently instructed as junior counsel for the FCA in a large regulatory enforcement case.
Tom also advises clients on issues arising from criminal and regulatory investigations brought by the FCA, SFO and CPS. He recently assisted with the defence of a senior finance professional who was under investigation by the regulatory arm of the FCA and authorities in the US and is currently instructed to assist a global corporate in its response to US Department of Justice subpoenas.
