Tom de la Mare

Blackstone Chambers (London)
Barrister

Tom’s general commercial litigation practice spans a wide range of areas: civil fraud, particularly in a commercial employment context; confidential information and soft IP (trademarks, copyright); restraint of trade and restrictive covenants; conflicts of law. Given Tom’s strength in IP and EC/competition law practices, and the increasing reach of both into commercial life, Tom’s multi-disciplinary skills are regularly in demand. Tom has regularly acted in commercial issues in the CJEU, Court of Appeal as well as the Commercial Court and Chancery Division. A good deal of Tom’s commercial practice has an EU or regulatory dimension. Tom has a competition law practice that spans the full range of EU and domestic competition law matters, with particular focus on cartels, and private enforcement (“stand alone” and “follow on” claims) as well as state aid. Such cartels work provides a natural synergy with Tom’s civil fraud work and experience. Tom also provides competition advice and representation to regulators and regulated parties.
