Tom Broster – Solicitor
Tom is an intellectual property lawyer advising on a wide range of intellectual property matters, with a particular focus on contentious and non-contentious copyright, trade mark and design matters.
Tom joined Briffa on qualification after training at a large regional firm where he gained experience in contentious and non-contentious intellectual property, commercial and sport matters. Prior to this he worked as a litigation paralegal at a Magic Circle law firm.
Tom is also a fan of music. He says a music track that best defines him is ‘Layla’ by Eric Clapton as it is the song that first captured his interest in music, leading to his interest in the creative industries and later intellectual property. Tom plays guitar and has previously written songs for bands in the North West.
Finally Tom was asked “If you could give a single piece of advice to someone, what would it be?” He replied by saying “Embrace and accept what is, but don’t get too comfortable” – Tom Broster 2016.
