Thomas Dunn

  • Experience

Thomas joined Birketts in January 2019. He is a Paralegal within our Regulatory and Corporate Defence Team.

Thomas is the first point of contact for all enquiries to both the Regulatory and Corporate Defence Team and for the team of consultants he manages, including our Health and Safety consultants, a Trading Standards consultant and a Road Transport consultant. Thomas acts as diary clerk to those consultants as well the many advocates within in the team.

As well as dealing with and progressing all new enquiries into the team he will often act as a point of contact to many of the team’s clients providing updates and support to them throughout their matter liaising with the instructed Solicitor or Barrister in the matter.

Thomas is also a fee earner and works directly with all of the advocates within the team, supporting them in the wide range of specialisms offered.

With over 15 years of experience in both policing, preparing and defending criminal cases, Thomas is often the key contact for many of our clients looking for general crime advice. He attends court predominantly with clients and counsel and often acts as a liaison between the two parties, helping the client to navigate the often stressful or complex legal processes, but also to be on hand and support the advocate instructed. Thomas advises in defending many motoring matters and prepares those cases by completing the plea and mitigation forms with our clients as well as meeting our client to take instructions.

Thomas enjoys and focuses heavily on client care and the client experience. Understanding that criminal proceedings and court appearances can be a difficult and often daunting experience for clients Thomas is always on hand to offer advice and reassurance and puts the client care and client’s needs first.

Thomas’ work includes mainly private criminal defence, Health and Safety and Regulatory work, Public Inquiries as well as motoring offences and financial crime. With such a wide range of services and areas of law that the RCD team offers, Thomas is always available to discuss, and encourages anyone with an enquiry for the Regulatory and Corporate Defence Team to contact him with their query to see if Birketts can assist in the matter.

Thomas is based in our Ipswich office, however covers all of the Birketts regional offices and can often be found working from the Chelmsford, Cambridge or City of London office.

I would say a big thank you to Thomas Dunn for answering all my questions and giving me advice and steps to take my concern further. Even though we only spoke through emails, he was very professional, kind and took my concerns seriously. Thank you so much Thomas!! I wish there were more lawyers like you!
