TLT has elected Sasha Butterworth as senior partner for a three-year term starting on 1 January 2023.

Sasha takes over from Andrew Glynn who has been senior partner at TLT for seven years after being re-elected in 2019.

In her role as senior partner, Sasha will sit on the firm's governance & oversight board and chair both the firm's remuneration and promotions committees. Sasha will also lead the firm's Responsible Business programme - a key focus for the firm. The last year has seen TLT continue to cement its position as a leader in sustainability with the appointment of a dedicated sustainability team and the introduction of a robust sustainability strategy underpinned by carbon emission cutting targets.

Commenting on her appointment, Senior Partner Sasha Butterworth said: "I’m looking forward to supporting the further growth and positive impact of the firm on the wider communities in which we work. As an employer we need to attract, support and retain talent and it’s crucial that we continue to provide opportunities to a wide and varied group of people by offering alternative training schemes to the conventional routes.”

Managing Partner John Wood commented: "Sasha will continue to drive many of the fantastic projects that Andrew has led on, to make TLT a successful and sustainable business for our people and our clients. The firm has delivered a new progressive approach to working alongside an ambitious strategy in recent years and, despite the economic uncertainty in the UK, TLT has grown at pace; winning new clients, recruiting fantastic talent and leading the way in terms of wellbeing, environmental and social initiatives.”

Sasha will continue in her role as head of the TLT pensions team which advises employers and trustees on all aspects of pension schemes in the public and private sectors. Sasha is a full member of the Association of Pension Lawyers and sits on the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association legal panel. She has been a partner at TLT since 2006 and has taken a leading role in TLT’s new Legal Apprenticeships scheme.

TLT reported a record financial year with 30% turnover growth in 2021/2022. Revenue of £144m up from £110m in 2020/2021, exceeded the £140m target initially set for 2025. The results follow an exceptional year in which TLT launched the firm’s strategic vision for 2025 aiming to drive robust financial growth by increasing resources, developing the firm’s reach locally, nationally and internationally, and using the latest integrated technology, whilst delivering a progressive workplace agenda, with market leading sustainability.

TLT has continued to invest in new legal and business talent and growth has also been driven by TLT’s FutureLaw programme – an aligned, integrated and indispensable approach to meeting the changing needs of clients.
