Tom Lowe

Thomas Lowe QC 

Barrister, Wilberforce Chambers (London)

Speaker Biography
Tom has acted in numerous reported and high profile cases in a wide range of commercial disputes and before a large variety of tribunals. A large proportion of his work is offshore and his main areas of expertise include commercial fraud, insolvency, trust litigation, professional negligence, financial services, banking as well as probate disputes.

Much of Tom's offshore work relates to the multi-jurisdictional disputes arising from the collapses of investments funds and from high value private client work. Many of these cases by their nature have involved asset tracing in the context of commercial or financial fraud.

As well as acting for clients in the Far East he has appeared overseas in courts in the Bahamas, Bermuda, the Cayman Islands and Jersey and has a number of overseas clients.

His professional negligence work for which he is recommended in The Legal 500 includes accountants, auditors, financial advisers, valuers, solicitors and barristers.

In financial services he has acted for regulators, financial advisers as well as investors. He has appeared before disciplinary tribunals on behalf of accountants and investment businesses.

He speaks German fluently and has a working knowledge of French and Spanish.
