Jill Thomas

JillI handle a wide range of commercial disputes, including: all manner of property and commercial contract claims; directors', shareholders' and partnership disputes; insolvency-related cases; as well as more specialist litigation in areas like intellectual property. My experience ranges from smaller cases in the County Courts, to complex High Court litigation and international arbitrations.

Whatever the case, though, my aim is always the same – to understand your business or personal circumstances, to offer constructive, practical and timely advice, and to achieve the best possible result as swiftly and cost-effectively as possible. For this reason, I qualified as a mediator in 1992, and have now mediated over 100 disputes, making a name for myself as a leader in this field within Kent.

Before founding ThomasHaywood Solicitors, with Sarah Haywood, in 2011, I was a partner at several respected Kent firms. I am a member of the Law Society and the Property Litigation Association and have been appointed to the mediation panels of ADR Group, Canterbury Christchurch University and the Property Litigation Association.  I am a former director of the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce and former trustee of West Kent College.

Satisfied clients have been kind enough to recommend me in the market. For example, one comments: "Jill is a wonderful ally – her tactics and business acumen make her an invaluable asset in litigation. She looks at litigation from the client's point of view which in my experience is a rare quality," (Tom Allsworth, Medichem International (Manufacturing) Limited).

I enjoy playing the piano, playing squash, practising yoga and Pilates and working on my allotment. I also spend more time than I should acting as a taxi service for my elder son and watching my younger son play sport. I spend less time than I should walking my dog.
