National law firm TLT has appointed five new legal directors as the firm continues its growth in Birmingham. The new appointments will further broaden the firm’s offering across financial services disputes and investigations, corporate, commercial and commercial dispute resolution practices.

The firm has grown its litigation practice with the appointment of three expert litigators including Rebekah Finch who has joined TLT’s national commercial dispute resolution team to advise a wide range of corporate and commercial clients in relation to various commercial disputes. Alongside Rebekah, Amanda Wootton and Julie Peel have joined TLT’s financial services disputes and investigations team, providing expert legal advice to a wide variety of financial institutions, and advising on some of the most complex disputes in the financial services sector.

TLT has also strengthened its corporate offering with the appointment of Leanne Fryer who specialises in M&A for large corporates, SMEs and owner managers. At TLT, Leanne will focus on MBOs, private equity investments and equity release arrangements.

In addition, the firm has appointed public procurement and public sector contracts expert Claire Gamage to its commercial team. Claire has over a decade of experience supporting both public bodies and private businesses on high-profile procurements, predominantly in the IT, healthcare, defence, real estate and infrastructure sectors, and will play a central part in expanding TLT’s commercial offering.

The news builds on the recent opening of TLT’s office in Birmingham – the firm’s seventh across the UK – which saw the appointments of Mathew Harvey as corporate partner, Roger Potgieter as partner in the financial services dispute team and Mark Elder who has joined as head of location and as partner in the commercial dispute team.

Mark Elder, partner and head of location in Birmingham commented: “Since opening TLT’s office in Birmingham at the end of 2023, we have seen an influx of interest in the firm from some of the best legal talent in the region, as well as some of the most high-profile organisations across the UK and in the Midlands.

“Rebekah, Claire, Amanda, Julie and Leanne are extremely talented lawyers in their respective fields, and they will significantly enhance the service we’re offering clients across four of our core practice areas. We’re delighted to welcome them to the team and will continue to invest in our resources to ensure we continue to deliver the market-leading legal support and guidance that TLT is known for, preparing our clients for what comes next.”
