FAST-GROWING law firm TLW Solicitors has taken steps to manage an increase in demand for its specialist services by appointing a new head of marketing and business development to its North Shields-based practice.
Alistair McDonald, formerly business relationships director for care specialists Keiro and on the board of organisations including Attitude is Everything, was headhunted by the firm to grow the business further outside of the North East and expand its niche offerings.
With a wealth of experience in developing business and marketing strategies, TLW Solicitors brought in Mr McDonald’s expertise to oversee the creation and ongoing growth of its specialist areas including financial mis-selling, serious personal injury, industrial disease, professional negligence and its new motoring offences arm, ‘MotoPro’, which was announced last month.
Alistair said: “It is a very exciting time to join TLW as they branch out further into more niche areas of the business. For example, we recently launched MotoPro, a specialist arm to the business dealing with a number of motoring offence laws due to demand which has increased significantly over the past few years.
“It is exciting to be a part of an ambitious organisation that listens to the needs of its clients and adapts its business model accordingly to assist more clients from all over the UK and I am enjoying the challenges this brings.”
Established in 2000, TLW Solicitors has grown into one of the UK’s leading litigation law firms and employs over 50 members of staff. Its aim is to grow the firm nationally and employ more staff by the end of the year.
TLW Solicitors’ partner Peter McKenna said: “With demand for our services growing at an all-time high with new reforms coming into play, we needed to bring in more expertise to head up the business development side.
“Alistair understands the need to progress the niche areas of the legal services we offer outside of the region to become a nationally recognised law firm.
“Alistair has an excellent reputation in really getting under the skin of a business, so was the ideal choice to join our team and be able to put strategic plans in place and implement them, and we are pleased to welcome him on board.”
TLW Solicitors provides a comprehensive range of legal services across the UK to both individuals and business clients including professional negligence, personal injury, motoring offences and financial mis-selling.
