2nd October 2020, 3:01 pm

TLT’s Manchester office has added construction to its growing list of ranked practice areas in the legal industry’s prestigious directory, the Legal 500, while employment has increased its ranking to Tier 1.

TLT appointed contentious construction partner Sean McCay to lead the Manchester construction team in 2019 and he has since added transactional construction partner Jahanara Hussain.

Meanwhile, the employment team has been going from strength to strength, with the appointment of partner and retail specialist Liz Cotton in 2019 and solicitor and immigration expert John Smith in 2020. The team acts for a growing number of high profile organisations in the North West.

Seven partners from TLT’s Manchester office have been ranked as ‘Leading Individuals’ in the 2021 edition, including a new ranking for employment partner Ed Cotton.

Legal director Roisin McGlinn has been named a ‘Rising Star’, joining fellow legal director Debbie Reynolds, who has retained her ranking this year.

Graeme Orchison, partner and location head for TLT in Manchester and a ‘Leading Individual’, says: “Client feedback is incredibly important to us so it’s great to see so many of the teams and individuals being featured. We have worked really hard to develop our full-service offering in Manchester over recent years, and it’s great to see this reflected in the range of practice areas that are ranked. We continue to be ambitious and to develop our offering in response to client demand.”

TLT is ranked in 58 submission areas across England & Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland in the 2021 directory. Nine lawyers are featured in the ‘Hall of Fame’, 25 as ‘Leading Individuals’, 14 as ‘Next Generation Partners’ and six as ‘Rising Stars’.

The firm reported revenues of £98.8m for the financial year 2019/20. With six offices across the UK, the firm continues to build scale in its specialist sectors including: clean energy; digital; financial services; leisure, food & drink; public sector; real estate; and retail & consumer goods.
