TLT has announced the arrival of Craig Thompson as a partner in its commercial dispute resolution (CDR) team in London. He was previously a partner at Wallace where he was instrumental in establishing a highly-regarded CDR practice, and before then worked at Ernst & Young, Pinsent Masons and Osborne Clarke.

Thompson brings more than 22 years’ experience to TLT’s UK team. He acts for major UK and international clients including on complex and cross-border disputes, with particular experience in technology disputes, professional negligence claims, civil fraud and competition litigation.

He has experience in several of TLT’s core sectors – expanding on the firm’s expertise in clean energy, digital (including telecoms), financial services, leisure, food & drink, real estate and retail & consumer goods – as well as sports, manufacturing, aviation and business support services.

He is a specialist commercial litigator, with extensive experience in a wide range of issues which also includes shareholder disputes; international joint venture disputes; contract disputes; warranty litigation; IP disputes; insolvency litigation; misrepresentation and misappropriation claims.

Chris Owen, partner and head of commercial dispute resolution at TLT, said: “Craig is an excellent lawyer with experience in acting on high profile and complex disputes for his clients. He brings a wealth of experience to our team and we are delighted to have him on board.”

Craig Thompson, partner at TLT, commented: “This is a wonderful opportunity for me to grow my practice in London. TLT has been experiencing significant growth nationally and in London and I am excited to be working with such a strong team across the firm’s sectors.

“The London litigation market continues to enjoy healthy growth both in litigation and arbitration. The outlook looks similar and it can reasonably be expected that there will be increased litigation across most sectors. I believe TLT is well-positioned to support its clients as these needs arise.”
