TLT lawyer appointed to global committee aiming to help real estate sector tackle climate crisis

June 9, 2022

A senior knowledge lawyer at Bristol-headquartered national law firm TLT with a long-standing commitment to using the law to achieve net zero has been invited to sit on an international advisory committee promoting climate-aligned contracts.

TLT said Alexandra Holsgrove Jones’ appointment to The Chancery Lane Project’s (TCLP’s) advisory committee for the built environment also recognised her continued efforts to ensure that the firm and its clients are using the contract clauses wherever possible. 

TCLP has created a global network of more than 2,500 legal professionals who work together to create new, practical contractual clauses that help tackle climate change and are free to access.

The built environment project was launched earlier this year to reflect the huge potential for innovative and practical clauses to effect significant change in the real estate sector.

TLT, which employs around a total of around 1,200 people across its offices in Bristol, London, Manchester and Glasgow, is a leading national adviser to the real estate sector, advising developers, property businesses, investors and affordable housing providers on projects across the property lifecycle from investment and development to construction and sale.

Alexandra, pictured, a senior knowledge lawyer in TLT’s real estate group, specialises in commercial property law and deals with precedents, training, complex research, and both internal and client briefings.

She has acted for landowners on largescale developments, and on behalf of both landlords and tenants in lease acquisitions, disposals and general estate management work.

Alexandra said: “Over the last 18 months I have been closely involved with TCLP, attending workshops and being on the priority drafting working group.

“Being on the advisory committee will put TLT at the heart of TCLP and give us exposure to key individuals and organisations, helping us to achieve our own sustainability objectives and advise our clients on net zero drafting.”

TLT head of real estate and future energy Maria Connolly said driving sustainable action was one of TLT’s core values.

“The Chancery Lane Project is a key driver in getting net zero drafting into contracts, and we are proud to be an active participant in TCLP events,” she added.

“TCLP’s recognition of Alex’s contribution, in inviting her to be on the advisory committee for the built environment project, is testament to the effort she has put into both contributing to drafting, and promoting the use of TCLP clauses, over the last couple of years.”
