Following TLT's appointment to the Insolvency Service's £16m legal panel, the firm has announced the appointment of Claire Graham, leading insolvency and disputes lawyer, as partner in its growing Manchester office.
Claire, who joins from DWF, will jointly manage the Insolvency Service panel relationship with former colleague and past President of Manchester Law Society Jon Hainey, who moved to TLT as partner from DWF in May 2018.
She specialises in dispute resolution with considerable experience in dealing with disputes involving insolvency issues, fraud, public interest litigation and company law. The appointment further strengthens TLT's UK-wide restructuring and insolvency team and specialist UK-wide public sector teams.
Jon Hainey, partner at TLT, says: "We are delighted that Claire has joined our growing team and I am pleased to once again be working alongside her as we support the Insolvency Service through its new legal panel.
"Winning the contract with the Insolvency Service strengthens our long-standing relationship with them and provides us with an excellent platform for further investment in our UK-wide restructuring and insolvency and public sector teams."
Claire Graham, partner at TLT, says: "I'm delighted to be joining TLT's leading team, especially in a period of such exciting growth. I'm looking forward to working with Jon again to manage the firm's key contract with the Insolvency Service and helping to achieve the firm's significant ambitions in Manchester."
