Legal firm TLT has promoted five to associate in Scotland in recognition of their continued hard work across the firm and for clients.
The promotions include Sarah Ainslie, Michael Collins and Joanna Sykes in the financial services team, and Michael McDougall and Alison Smith in the licensing team.
Across the firm, TLT is making four partner promotions, 11 associate to legal director promotions and 25 associate promotions.
TLT is growing rapidly in Scotland, with high profile appointments in the last year including banking partner Douglas Gourlay, clean energy specialist and real estate partner Nick Shenken, and corporate partner Damien Bechelli. TLT acquired Glasgow-based commercial real estate firm Leslie Wolfson & Co in October appointing Howard Beach, Donna Strong and Andrew McCowan as partner.
John Paul Sheridan, TLT’s location head in Scotland, says: “We are growing rapidly in Scotland and it is fantastic to see our newly promoted associates gaining recognition for their hard work. It really is a considerable achievement and demonstrates the opportunities and supportive culture at TLT, and our commitment to investing in people. Improving diversity is a priority for the firm and it is positive to see a 75% gender split for partner promotions and 82% for legal director.”
