Background

Thomas Ibbotson is a trainee solicitor in our Leeds office. Before beginning his training contract, Thomas worked for a year in the firm’s National Fast Track Centre in Sheffield.

Thomas obtained an undergraduate History degree from the University of Hull and an MA in History from the University of Sheffield, where he also studied for his Graduate Diploma in Law and the Legal Practice Course.

Thomas was determined to have a career in law where he was standing up for the individual not corporations and knew that, given Thompsons' historic role in championing working people’s rights and refusing to act for insurers or employers, there was no better firm he could train with.

When he is not working, Thomas is a Sheffield United season ticket holder, plays squash and football, cares for two pet rabbits and enjoys walking in the Peak District.
