He has advised and represented companies and State-owned entities in international arbitrations under the Rules of the ICC and ICSID. His experience includes construction, investment, energy and business combination disputes as well as arbitrations with an Iberian or Latin American nexus.

Thomas has featured Who’s Who Legal Arbitration – Future Leaders since the inaugural edition. The publication, which is based upon an independent survey of general counsel and private practice lawyers worldwide, profiles the foremost practitioners in the arbitration community aged 45 and under. It notes that “Thomas is lauded as ‘a true strategist with very sharp analysis’ by peers who commend his ‘clear, concise and stylish writing and oral skills’”. Previous editions of the same publication noted that he “is well regarded by market sources who consider him ‘a smart strategist’ and note his ‘strong trial skills,’” (2019) and “a very eloquent and very professional advocate” (2018).
