Bristol's TLT Solicitors has landed a foothold in the London market after securing a merger with 11-partner firm Lawrence Jones. Lawrence Jones has a well established banking practice with a client list that includes Allied Irish Bank, Banco Espirito Santo, Caterpillar Financial Services and Sumitomo Electric Europe. TLT managing partner David Pester said the firms' shared banking and retail expertise was a key reason behind the merger. Last year, TLT reported turnover of pound l7.5m, up from pound 15.8m the previous year.
