After having a varied early career Tim studied law at Plymouth and graduated in 1997. He went on to study at the Inns of Court School of Law in London specialising in employment law. Tim was called to the Bar in 1998 and is a member of Middle Temple.
On returning to Cornwall he was approached by local businesses asking if he could help out with their employment law related problems. Realising there was a need for specialist advice in that area Tim created TCS Business Services. He has represented clients in Employment Tribunals throughout the UK and the Employment Appeal Tribunal in respect of unfair dismissal claims, sex discrimination, minimum wage and breach of contract claims. He also has a vast knowledge when drafting bespoke employment law documents from employment contracts to restrictive covenants and non competition clauses.
Tim is Chairman and trustee of a local charity, Cosgarne Hall Limited, providing accommodation for people who, for whatever reason, find themselves homeless. A very keen cyclist, Tim’s ambition is to cycle from Land’s End to John O Groats in five days if he can tear himself away from watching football, F1 and cycling on tv! His ambition for 2016 is to cycle 310 miles from Newcastle to London non stop in less than 24 hours!
