Thomas Laughlin, QC

Partner

“No matter how hard you paddle, if you are not pointed in the right direction, you will only waste time and energy and never end up where you need to be.”

Setting and achieving targets.

There are never any guarantees in litigation, but you can significantly improve your chances by being more prepared and dedicated than the other party. When litigation is necessary, Thomas ensures he and his client are the most prepared people in the room. He achieves this by establishing a goal and setting a course to achieve it.
