TLT grows real estate specialism with development team hire

TLT has grown its real estate specialism with the appointment of partner Claire Hamilton, associate Carrie Whittle and legal assistant Nicole Keate from JMW. 

Based in TLT's growing Manchester office, Claire adds considerable experience in property investment, development and finance to the firm's real estate team, including commercial sales and purchases. She also brings valuable in-house experience from her time as in-house counsel at MCR Property Group. 

The team will continue to work for MCR Property Group at TLT, a real estate investment and development company focused on the strategic acquisition and repositioning of commercial, residential, industrial and retail assets across the UK with more than 150 sites in total. 

David Smithen, partner at TLT, says: "We are delighted to welcome Claire, Carrie and Nicole to the team. We are seeing a healthy mix of commercial and residential development with significant opportunities for entrepreneurial and ambitious developer/investors like MCR Property Group. TLT's national real estate and development practices are well-placed to deliver a wide range of services in a way that meets the needs of dynamic clients like this."

Claire Hamilton says: "I'm really excited to be joining TLT. It's great to be joining a team of experienced lawyers who are seeing significant growth in Manchester and across the UK. TLT were the obvious choice and will be a great fit for my clients and the team."

The trio join development partner John Hyde, who moved from Weightmans in April 2017, and construction partner Sean McCay who joined from Squire Patton Boggs in July 2019.
