Three individuals have just qualified as solicitors at the Southampton and Salisbury based Firm Trethowans following the completion of their two year training contracts.
Jess Johnston has qualified into the Wealth Structuring and Inheritance Planning Team where she will work with Partner Elizabeth Webbe in advising clients on the best ways to plan for their future and that of their families, including putting in place Wills, trusts and developing strategies for clients to reduce their tax bills.
Rhiannon Daniel has qualified into the Personal Injury Claimant Team where she will handle all types of personal injury cases on behalf of injured clients, including road traffic accidents, fatal accidents, employers and public liability claims. She will also assist senior team members on catastrophic injury cases including head, spinal and clinical negligence claims.
Jane Orme has qualified into the Corporate Team where she will provide transactional support on corporate deals, related advisory work (such as shareholders' agreements, joint ventures etc) and general business agreements. Jane has complementary experience in corporate finance which she gained on secondment to Meridian Corporate Finance. During her secondment Jane gained a good understanding of acquisitions, sales, MBOs/MBIs and fundraising as well as involvement with Meridian’s Growth Capital Fund. These experiences, as well as her previous employment as a project manager in the NHS, provide her with a broader knowledge base to complement her corporate and commercial legal experience.
Simon Rhodes, Managing Partner commented; "Jess, Rhiannon and Jane have become very valued and hard working members of Trethowans in the two years they’ve already been with us completing their training contracts. Each of them has demonstrated excellent legal knowledge and they have each helped a number of clients. But more importantly, they are all "good people” who happen to be "good lawyers”. They relate to clients and colleagues and constantly go the extra mile to provide a solution to each and every one of their clients. They are a fantastic addition to the Trethowans team and have a very bright future.”
