Overview

One of the most highly-regarded juniors on the North Eastern Circuit, Tom has been regularly recommended as a leading individual for criminal law in legal directories for several years (Legal 500 2011 – 2019; Chambers & Partners 2013 – 2019).  He both prosecutes and defends, and is often instructed as leading junior in cases of substance.  He is a member of the CPS general prosecution panel (level 4), serious organised crime panel and rape panel; he is one of only a few counsel nationwide with Developed Vetting (DV) security clearance. 

Tom has considerable experience of dealing with large-scale conspiracy cases relating to the supply of controlled drugs, firearms and fraudulent activity.  He is also frequently sought-after in cases involving serious sexual offences and those involving individuals suffering from serious mental health difficulties.

Chambers & Partners say:

Tom Storey
