TLT’s senior partner Robert Bourns has announced he is stepping down from the role in Janaury ahead of becoming the Law Society’s next president in July.
Bourns has held a number of high profile positions over the years including that of managing partner for both TLT and legacy firm Trumps. He currently holds the position of deputy vice president of the Law Society.
Despite stepping down Bourns will continue to work at the firm and will remain a partner within the firm’s employment, pensions and incentives group once the changes take place on 1 January 2016.
Real estate partner Andrew Glynn will take up the role as the firm’s senior partner after being elected over the summer. Replacing Glynn as real estate head is energy and renewables sector leader Maria Connolly.
TLT managing partner David Pester said: “We’re at a critical point in our development as a firm. Following several years of rapid UK growth, we must now look to embed new offices and people into the wider TLT business.
“Andrew and Maria are experienced hands that will provide strong leadership and direction across the business as we continue to develop a UK law firm that challenges the established players for work and people.”
Last year TLT grew its turnover by 8 per cent, from £57.9m to £62.5m. The results were the first time that firm had seen its revenue break through the £60m barrier. TLT has undergone considerable growth over the last three years with the firm’s headcount increasing from 669 to 928 since May 2012.
