Trethowans announces Partner level promotion in corporate team
Trethowans has promoted corporate lawyer Jamie Earley to Partner.
Jamie joined Trethowans in 2015 and is based in the Southampton office. He is a key individual within the corporate team, specialising in acquisitions and disposals, with particular experience in the builder’s merchant’s sector. He also acts for companies and individuals in relation to shareholder, LLP and partnership agreements.
Jamie is recommended as a key lawyer in the Legal 500 and is noted for his corporate expertise.
He was recently involved in a $1.4bn international deal which saw System1, LLC become a publicly listed company on the New York Stock Exchange. The listing took place on 27 January 2022. Jamie also advised on the English law aspects of the $265m sale of Nutrawise Health & Beauty Corporation to Canadian listed entity Jamieson Wellness, which completed in June 2022.
In the builder’s merchant sector, he previously advised the shareholders of Exall Jones on their sale to Huws Gray Group late last year and advised the shareholders of Wantage Builders Merchants on their sale to Grant & Stone in May 2022.
Jamie Earley, Partner, said: “I am excited to join the partnership at such a strong time for both the firm and the corporate team, which has again been ranked as Tier 1 in this year’s Legal 500. I am lucky to work with some very talented lawyers who have mentored me since joining Trethowans seven years ago, and I look forward to contributing to the team and firm’s continued growth”.
Commenting on Jamie’s success, Mike Watson, Managing Partner, said: “Jamie has been an integral member of the corporate team since he joined the firm in 2015, dealing with complex large-scale transactions, often with international elements involved. During this time we have seen the team, which is recognised as one of the strongest in the region, go from strength to strength. I would like to congratulate Jamie on his promotion and wish him every success.”
