  • commercial disputes, including contractual claims, post-acquisition matters, loan and other banking disputes

  • consumer class actions

  • employment

  • false advertising

  • food, drug and cosmetic disputes

  • product liability

  • professional ethics and liability

  • unfair competition and antitrust

From 2009-2013, Tom was a global co-chair for the commercial litigation practice of Sidley Austin LLP, and head of that firm's Los Angeles litigation group. He has been recognized as a "Litigation Star" by Benchmark Litigation in 2010 and 2014 and by Who's Who Legal in 2012-2014. He has  served as arbitrator and mediator in hundreds of cases, and has participated in dozens of mediations and arbitration hearings as an advocate.
