TLT further expands UK-wide corporate team with Scotland appointment

TLT has further grown its UK-wide corporate team with the appointment of Kirsty Smith as legal director in Glasgow, who joins from DWF. 

Kirsty joins Damien Bechelli, who moved to TLT as partner from DWF in November 2018.

Specialising in corporate finance and private equity, Kirsty's wealth of experience further enhances TLT's UK-wide corporate offering, building on recent significant hires in England & Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

The appointment adds to TLT's strength and depth in supporting businesses and investors on a full range of corporate requirements, from mergers and acquisitions to management buyouts, private equity and venture capital investments. 

John Wood, partner and head of corporate at TLT, says: "We've recognised a growing need from our clients for a UK-wide corporate offering and a strong corporate team on the ground in Scotland, and are expanding our team accordingly. 

"We have seen continued growth in our corporate team across each of our locations, and are delighted to have Kirsty on board to help us realise our ambitious strategy for client growth across the UK and explore the opportunities we see in the market."

Damien Bechelli, partner at TLT, says: "Kirsty has a proven track record in corporate finance and I am really pleased to be working with her again at TLT. It's an exciting time to join the firm – we're in the middle of a significant growth period and investing heavily in Scotland."

Kirsty Smith, legal director at TLT, says: "I'm excited to become part of the experienced and driven team at TLT, especially at a time of solid and sustained growth. I'm looking forward to supporting our clients and helping achieve TLT's significant ambitions in Scotland."
