"Together, TLT and Knutsen & Co worked alongside the Company, essentially as though they were one firm and in an excellent spirit throughout. The level of service and support they gave the Company was of the highest standard." On behalf of Avon Rubber plc, TLT and Knutsen & Co cooperated closely in the conduct of long running tri-partite commercial litigation which had actions in both England and Norway. Through the combined efforts of both firms, Avon was extracted successfully from the Norwegian proceedings, which the remaining parties pursued to further appeal stages.
