- ABC Ltd v X (fast track): Debt recovery (D). Thomas represented a client who was being sued by her former partner’s company for renovation work. Following his robust opposition to the introduction of late evidence, the Claimant agreed to discontinue the action.
- X Plc v TT Ltd (small claims track): Debt recovery (C). Following Thomas’ cross-examination of the Defendant’s sole director, the judge not only found in favour of Thomas’ client but also made a costs award against the Defendant, deeming its conduct unreasonable.
- XYZ Plv v RL Ltd: (small claims track): Penalty clauses and unfair contract terms (D). In the face of Thomas’ submissions, the corporate claimant was unable to substantiate its case, which was dismissed in its entirety.
