27th May 2020, 10:16 am

UK law firm TLT has expanded its fast growing construction team as part of its full-service offering in Manchester, with the arrival of Jahanara Hussain as partner.

The strategic appointment deepens the firm’s capabilities in construction and engineering, building on the appointment of TLT’s head of construction in Manchester, Sean McCay, in 2019.

Jahanara, who is a transactional construction specialist and joins from BLM Law, has twenty years’ experience and has also worked at Eversheds, Halliwells and Gateley. She will work alongside Sean, who has successfully built a team around him in the last year. The appointment also supports TLT’s recent appointment to the North West Legal Consortium 2020-2024 legal services framework.

Jahanara brings a wide range of experience to TLT, having worked on numerous major infrastructure and development and engineering projects across the UK and overseas. She has advised on complex projects in higher education, residential, retail, network distribution centres and various local infrastructure fund projects.

She advises private and public sector clients including developers, contractors, consultants, funders, end users, local authorities and private individuals, and is bringing active projects to TLT.

Graeme Orchison, location head for TLT in Manchester, says: “This is tremendous news for TLT as we look to deepen our capabilities across the full service team in Manchester. This rapid expansion of key service lines is critical to support our key priority sectors, and we were delighted when Jahanara agreed to join TLT earlier this year.

“We see immediate opportunities to support our clients with their growth plans and construction requirements in the coming months and it is great to finally have her on board.”

Jahanara Hussain, partner at TLT, says: “I am delighted to be joining the strong and ambitious team at TLT. The firm has incredible strength in depth across its practice areas, which makes it a unique proposition in construction and I am excited to be bringing that to our clients. The firm has been going from strength to strength and I am looking forward to playing a key role in our future growth.”

Other partner appointments in Manchester in the last year include employment partner Liz Cotton; development partner Claire Hamilton; corporate partners Richard Life and Mark Traynor; and contentious insolvency expert Claire Graham.

TLT appointed Stacey Cassidy as construction partner in Glasgow in April 2020.
