Tom Goodhead

Global Managing Partner | Global Chief Executive Officer
London, UK

Tom has dedicated his career to representing the interests of individuals from all around the world in litigation against some of the world’s most powerful companies.

He is currently litigating two of the largest group litigations in UK legal history (claims against BHP and Volkswagen) and, over the course of his career, he has successfully recovered tens of millions of pounds in settlements and verdicts.

Passionate about business and human rights, Tom believes that whilst capitalism is the world’s most powerful tool to lift people out of poverty, transnational corporations must be held to account for violations of the environmental, social, and competitive orders.

Tom has a love for the country of Brazil and its people. He initiated the Fundão Dam litigation and has been travelling to Brazil numerous times to meet with current and potential claimants. He finds the state of Minas Gerais, with its landscape scattered with the scars of the extractive industries, reminiscent of his upbringing at the foot of the SIrhowy Valley in Pontymister, Wales.
