Bristol headquartered national law firm TLT has appointed Jon Stewart as a partner in its banking and finance practice, which is central to the firm's Financial Services offering.
Jon joins from Osborne Clarke’s Bristol office where he was a senior associate and brings with him a broad range of banking and corporate finance experience, with an emphasis on corporate lending, acquisition finance and property finance.
Gary Roscoe, banking and finance partner in Bristol says, "Jon is a significant addition to our rapidly growing banking and finance practice. I am delighted that Jon has joined the firm as he will help us to continue delivering a first-rate offering to clients with his considerable specialist expertise."
TLT advises some of the UK's largest banking institutions as well as an increasing number of international banks. Over the last twelve months, the team has advised on a significant flow of instructions from its appointments to the panels of The Co-operative Bank and Nationwide Building Society, as well as from TLT's continuing key institutional and corporate banking clients.
TLT's banking and finance practice has specialist knowledge in the renewables, retail and leisure sectors, alongside a strong corporate and property practice. The practice has broad experience of advising clients on syndicated and bi-lateral finance documents, in the context of both cross-border and domestic transactions.
TLT's financial services team delivers legal advice across all three UK legal jurisdictions. Clients have recently voted TLT first of all UK law firms in Legal Week's Client Satisfaction Report 2012, acknowledging the firm's strategy and growth in Scotland and Northern Ireland. TLT has also been named National Firm of the Year at the Legal Business Awards 2013.
