Business & Property
Roger Thomas is regularly instructed by both claimants and defendants to advise upon a range of business and property matters and he appears in all levels of court to represent his clients’ interests. Having spent more than 20 years in commerce and industry before coming to the Bar, Roger brings to his work a wealth of first-hand experience at the ‘coal face’ which enables him to quickly understand the relevant issues in the case and to communicate with both professional and lay clients in the language of their business.
More specifically, Roger accepts instructions in the following areas:
- Company law
- Contractual disputes
- Product licensing agreements
- Employment and labour relations
- Commercial property disputes
- Wills and probate
- The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975
- Professional liability
- Sports Law
In his advisory work Roger is astute to get to the heart of the factual issues and to explain clearly and concisely the application of the relevant law to the factual matrix. Wherever possible, he will suggest a pragmatic solution to the problem at hand and he is a skilled negotiator. In court, Roger is a resourceful and tenacious advocate in his client’s cause.
A key feature of Roger’s employment practice is that he has held a number of board-level appointments in industrial and commercial enterprises in both unionised and non-unionised environments. In his various posts as Finance Director, Commercial Director and Managing Director, he held budget and line responsibility for the Human Resource function within the businesses in which he worked. As such, Roger was routinely involved in the formulation and implementation of HR policies and procedures as well as day to day decisions in respect of recruitment, training, safety, performance appraisal, grievance management, dismissal and redundancy programmes. As a consequence, he has a wealth of insight and experience of the workplace from both the employer’s perspective and the employee’s. This has made him an extremely effective advocate in Employment Tribunals up and down the country.
