Thom has accepted an invitation to join the Advisory Group of the Centre for Criminal Appeals. The Centre is a charity committed to fighting miscarriages of justice and demanding reform in the area of criminal law.
The Centre works to find cases with merit and high potential impact, and then investigates to uncover fresh evidence to show that a conviction is unsafe, or a sentence is unfair. The Centre brings cases to the Criminal Cases Review Commission, the Administrative Court, and the Court of Appeal.
Other Advisory Group members include Simon Ford (producer of the Rough Justice television series), Gareth Peirce (lawyer for Birmingham Six and Guildford Four), and Clive Stafford Smith (attorney, founder of Reprieve).
Thom is instructed frequently to both advise and represent clients in appeals to the High Court and Court of Appeal. Click here for more information as to his appeals practice.
