TLT re-elects Managing Partner David Pester for fifth three year term

TLT has re-elected Managing Partner David Pester for a further three year term. This will be David's fifth term as Managing Partner, having taken on the leadership role in 2002.

Since 2002 the firm has more than tripled in size with revenues expected to exceed £55m in 2014/15 and staff numbers likely to touch 1000 in the next 12-18 months.

Helping to drive growth is the firm's expansion from its Bristol and London base to become a national firm. In the last two years, the firm has set up new offices in Manchester and Belfast. It also merged with Scottish law firm Anderson Fyfe, adding offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The firm has focused on building expertise in several key industry sectors with Boohoo.com and E.ON recent additions to a client list that includes Barclays, BBC, Dyson, Merlin Entertainments, Punch Taverns, RBS and WHSmith.

Commenting on his re-appointment and objectives for the next three years, David Pester said:

"TLT continues to grow by focusing on building scale and deepening areas of legal expertise around the specific needs of clients.

"In the current market, this means responding to client cost pressures by constantly looking at how we build expertise and deliver it more efficiently. It means having the flexibility to respond to clients when and where they need you and, it means being open and proactive in the way you collaborate with others to deliver.

"Our approach is simple; we want to be famous for our expertise and the responsive, efficient and collaborative way we deliver it."

Robert Bourns, senior partner, TLT commented:

"Consistent strong leadership has been integral to TLT's success. David's reappointment will help cement this success and ensure the business continues to grow and transform in response to client need."
