UK law firm TLT has appointed Peter McGladrigan as a legal director in Edinburgh.
Peter is a leading financial services, commercial litigation and insolvency lawyer. The appointment grows TLT’s extensive network of more than 200 litigators across the UK, and follows the arrival of restructuring and insolvency legal director Ainslie Benzie in Glasgow in 2020.
He specialises in insolvency, banking litigation, debt recovery and commercial litigation and has significant experience acting for insolvency practitioners and financial services clients, including banks. He has a varied practice, also acting for, amongst others, energy companies, suppliers to the construction industry and statutory bodies.
A Solicitor Advocate, having obtained extended rights of audience in the supreme courts (Court of Session and Supreme Court) in 2019, he has extensive advocacy experience and litigates regularly in both the Sheriff Court and the Court of Session.
John Paul Sheridan, partner and head of Scotland at TLT, says: “I’m really pleased to welcome Peter to the team. We are seeing increasing demand for these services as clients face the consequences of a global pandemic and Peter will help to ensure that we can continue to meet their needs.”
“We remain ambitious in Scotland and continue to focus on growing the team in line with client demand and future opportunities.”
Peter McGladrigan, legal director at TLT, says: “I’m delighted to be joining TLT at a time of growth and expansion for the firm, both within the Scottish market and nationally.
“TLT is an outstanding firm with an excellent reputation, especially in the litigation sphere. I look forward to working with John Paul and the team to grow the business and deliver high quality service to the firm’s existing and prospective clients.”
TLT made several strategic hires in Scotland in 2020, including Stacey Cassidy (partner, construction), Michael Spence (partner, real estate), and Ayla Skene (of counsel, international trade).
