About Oliver

Starting my training contract was a steep learning curve. I have learnt that the best service you can provide to a client is giving clear, legally sound business advice rather than purely explaining the law to them. Understanding our clients’ business and the ultimate aim of their instruction to TLT is crucial.

I’ve been given instant exposure to client-facing work including the most high-profile cases my current team is working on. I would say that juggling a large workload and getting up to speed on files that are in advanced stages is the most challenging part of my job so far, but I am really motivated by the pace of work and the passion that I have seen in all the employees from legal assistant up to partner.
