TLT has expanded its UK-wide employment team with the appointment of Amy Stokes, employment partner, in Manchester.
Joining from Forbes Solicitors where she was a partner in the employment team, Amy brings over 15 years of experience providing strategic legal counsel and solutions to clients across various sectors.
Amy has a broad range of experience in employment law issues including ensuring compliance with legislation, advising on workforce reorganisations and restructurings, as well as navigating the intricacies of employment tribunal cases. Amy has acted for employers across the UK, including some of the largest organisations in the North West, working across a wide variety of sectors including hospitality, manufacturing, financial services, construction, the public sector and retail.
At TLT, Amy will be working across a number of sectors providing specialist employment law guidance and strategic advice to support on the continued growth of this practice area.
Graeme Orchison, head of location in Manchester, commented: “Amy is an exceptional lawyer, and her experience will be invaluable to our NW and national employment teams, helping us expand the level of service we offer clients across all sectors. We’re delighted to welcome Amy to our office in Manchester during what has been an exciting couple of years. We recently announced that we have signed a deal to take the top two floors at Eden, Salford – designed to be one of the UK’s most sustainable office buildings – for our new home in Manchester. In addition, 2023 marks our ten-year anniversary since we first opened an office in the NW. Since then, we have grown exponentially reaching record financial growth and building one of the most established law firms in the region.”
Amy said: “I was particularly drawn to TLT’s reputation in the retail and hospitality sector, and its breadth of experience working in other key sectors. I’m looking forward to proactively support the growth of TLT’s employment offering, providing key strategic support to a number of key clients. TLT is a growing law firm, which has built a reputation for being a great employer – I’m excited to be joining the team.”
In 2022, TLT was named Law Firm of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards in recognition of its outstanding growth and for the launch of the firm’s fully flexible approach to working – TLT World.
