Tom Swann gained a distinction in his law Masters at the University of Kent and joined Furley Page in 2019 after securing a training contract with the firm. Based at the firm’s Canterbury office, Tom has gained experience through involvement with a wide variety of commercial disputes from commencement up to trial.
