Christian Toms is a partner in the Litigation Practice Group. Christian focuses his practice on complex financial arrangements and investment disputes, as well as joint venture, director and shareholder disputes. His previous experience at the Criminal Bar also gives him an invaluable insight when advising on financial regulatory matters.
Christian advocates on behalf of individuals and corporations spanning the financial service, technology, construction, sports and pharmaceutical industries. He has particular experience representing investment and commercial banks, hedge funds and other financial entities both locally and internationally.
In 2020, Her Majesty The Queen appointed Christian as a Recorder on the recommendation of the Lord Chancellor and the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales. Since then, he has served as a Recorder (Deputy Circuit Judge) in addition to maintaining his practice.
Christian is an avid proponent of pro bono initiatives and, despite his robust caseload, continuously volunteers his services to individuals with limited means within his community. Over the years, he has led numerous efforts to provide legal assistance to those who are most in need, including directing a charitable foundation and public interest programme at his previous firm.
