Tom started his legal career in Wellington and then went to work for a prominent Hawkes Bay law firm. There he gained work experience in property, commercial, will, and trust law.
He joined Gibson Sheat's Property team in 2022 and focusses on residential conveyancing, commercial property, and rural work. Tom enjoys the journey he goes through with clients, particularly when they get to settlement day and share with them how happy they are to move in, or to start their new project.
Tom takes a pragmatic approach to giving advice, ensuring that he understands what his clients are wanting to achieve, and simplifying complex issues for them.
Outside of work, Tom enjoys water sports. He swam competitively, coaches adult swimmers, and enjoys fishing, diving, and spearfishing. Tom also keeps fit by going to the gym and biking riding, and is at peace in his workshop building and fixing things and gardening.
