Overview of Practice
Tom Hoskins is a highly accomplished barrister whose practice covers all areas of serious crime (both prosecuting and defending), as well as professional discipline and public law.
As well as the full panoply of criminal cases, Tom is a seasoned white-collar crime and Proceeds of Crime Act practitioner, possessing significant experience of all aspects of confiscation, cash detention and forfeiture, as well as civil recovery. Tom’s work has a distinct international flavour, having worked in the United States for a firm specialising in international anti-corruption matters across multiple jurisdictions and having represented defendants on death row in Trinidad and Tobago.
Tom is an excellent advocate in professional regulation tribunals, particularly in the healthcare sector. He has built up extensive experience acting both for regulators and registrants who face disciplinary action. Tom’s work in this arena encompasses the most complex, lengthy and high-profile cases within and includes significant appellate experience. It is for good reason that he is regarded as the ‘go-to’ external counsel by Europe’s largest professional regulator.
In addition to his excellent advocacy experience, Tom has advised upon and conducted corporate investigations concomitant to significant business transactions and, additionally, investigations prior to disclosure by companies to law enforcement agencies. Tom also advises on the design and implementation of corporate compliance regimes to prevent bribery, corruption and sanctions breaches.
