Commenting on the new hires, partner and head of commercial dispute resolution Chris Owen said:

It’s fantastic to see how far our commercial litigation team has come. The team as expanded significantly in the last year to meet a growing demand from clients in the disputes arena and to position ourselves as the go-to litigation firm in the UK. We’re especially pleased to have recruited across our offices in Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow and London expanding our reach and allowing us to work with our clients on the ground in different locations.

“With uncertain economic times ahead, it’s inevitable that we will see an increase in disputes work and we’ve ensured our team is equipped with the right blend of resources and talent to continue delivering a best-in-class service to clients. It’s been great to welcome a host of exceptional lawyers to our commercial disputes team who have hit the ground running and are already delivering for our clients.

The new appointments follow an exceptional year in terms of financial growth during which TLT achieved a record financial year with 30% turnover growth in 2021/2022.
