Dispute Resolution Regulatory Matters

Thomas Joined Woodfines in 2024 as a Solicitor in the Regulatory and Dispute Resolution department. He went to the University of York to read History and Politics (Joint Honours) and continues his studies to complete a masters degree at the University of St Andrews to read international Politics. He began his career as a Policy Advisor in Westminster where he found the Legal aspects the most interesting.

He then became a Health and Safety Inspector where he inspected various factories and led investigations into workplace accidents and fatalities. He then decided to take a different route and retain as a Solicitor by studying GDL and LPC, he trained in various contentious seats and decided to settle on Litigation.

During his legal career he has had a wide range of experience in general Tort of Negligence, Insolvency procedures and Debt collection, with specific expertise in Commercial Disputes between companies, particularly professional negligence and breach of contact.


I have never dealt with a solicitor personally and was recommended to contact Woodfines to assist me with a complicated issue. All the staff were super helpful and attentive, but I was extremely fortunate to be passed on Mr Thomas Giles. This man is a credit to the team and is incredibly passionate about his job and the people he is caring for. He dealt with my issue with such patience as it was more complicated on my end, however, was ready to pick up where we left off and dealt with the issue in such a timely matter. He was professional, asked for all the smaller details and was able to spot anything that might potentially be a further issue all prior to carrying out the task itself. Mr Thomas Giles was sensitive about the subject and also knew the right way to go about it and the correct questions to ask. I was made aware of costs and any route the job itself might take us down. Couldn’t recommend him enough. Thank you so much.
