I built the practice from scratch, which I couldn't have done without the team.

About Stephen

Food and drink is a colourful industry and is our largest export in Scotland. I was offered the opportunity to build TLT’s licensing practice in Scotland from scratch to a team of four and it’s still growing. We’ve secured key clients across the board – and now act for thousands of licensed premises in Scotland. 

It’s an achievement I’m really proud of and I couldn't have done it without an outstanding team. If I need support from other departments – for example on social media – I can call on experts to help me, freeing my time for client development. 

And we do great work outside of the office too.  I was one of a team of 40 who climbed Ben Nevis for children with health problems.  It was probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever done but I loved the fact that we worked as a big family.
