Thomas Jefferies is an experienced specialist in property litigation. In his early years he worked in the litigation department of Freshfields, where the bulk of his work was planning and commercial landlord and tenant. He gained invaluable experience of the needs of solicitors and clients, which helped him develop a user friendly style when he began practice at the bar. He relishes court hearings, and has appeared at all levels from the LVT to the House of Lords, frequently against silks. His practice includes all areas of property litigation, including leasehold enfranchisement, landlord and tenant, mortgages, general property litigation, including related professional negligence. In his early years of practice he was involved in planning inquiries and appeals, and he now enjoys bringing his experience to bear in litigation raising planning and highways issues, such as enforcing planning obligations and disputes over obligations to use reasonable endeavours to obtain planning permission.

Arriving in October , Jefferies was soon sent to Macquarie Harbour after threatening a constable. Following that twelve-month sentence, he was unwisely appointed as a watchhouse keeper in Launceston.
