TLT has expanded its corporate team in Belfast with the appointment of Grant Edwards as associate.
Edwards joins TLT from Tughans Solicitors and will be working with corporate partner Andrew Jennings, who joined in January 2018 and completed TLT's full service offering in NI.
Edwards is an experienced corporate lawyer, advising SMEs and investors on a wide range of corporate matters including mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital investment, reorganisation and restructuring – helping companies to achieve fast growth.
He is highly respected by his peers and clients, having worked on some of the biggest deals in Northern Ireland over the last few years including in the clean energy and technology sectors, and as an active member of the NI entrepreneur and start-up community.
John Wood, partner and head of corporate at TLT, says: "We are continuing to grow our corporate team nationally by recruiting the best talent in the market, including in Belfast where we are seeing increasing demand for high quality legal and corporate services."
Andrew Jennings, corporate partner at TLT NI, says: "I am delighted to have Grant join the TLT corporate team here in Belfast. He brings great energy and drive as well as in-depth experience, which is crucial as we continue to advise and support businesses on the ground in NI."
Grant Edwards, associate at TLT NI, says: "TLT has enjoyed years of success in NI and I am excited to join its expanding corporate team. With the increase in inward investment and growing appetite of venture capital and private equity in Northern Irish businesses, there is a lot of enthusiasm in the market. The positive impact this is having on the start-up community in particular suggests that NI will continue to produce highly successful businesses, and I am looking forward to supporting them with the team at TLT."
