Trethowans announces Partner promotions and appointments
There have been three new Partner appointments, including two internal promotions.
Melia Hirst, based in the firm’s Bournemouth office, has joined Trethowans from another leading Dorset law firm. Melia advises on insolvency and restructuring matters. She acts for insolvency practitioners, banks and financiers, as well as directors of insolvent companies. She also handles solvent liquidations and group reorganisations. Additionally, Melia has significant experience in sales and purchases of distressed businesses. She also advises landlords, suppliers and others contracting with an entity that becomes insolvent.
Mariana Crawford and Louise Thompson have also been promoted from Senior Associates to Partners, and will be based in Trethowans’ Salisbury and Southampton offices respectively.
All three new Partners will service work across the business’ five offices in the region, including Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire and bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the sectors that they work in.
Mariana joined the firm back in 2016 and created the New Build Team as part of the Residential Property Team. She works closely with local and national developers often as a recommended solicitor due to her ability to provide excellent client experience and deliver results while negotiating the demands and processes often involved within a new build purchase.
Louise, a long-standing member of the firm, joined Trethowans upon qualifying back in 2008. She is a commercial contracts lawyer with many years of experience in supporting clients from a wide range of industries in relation to their commercial contracts from large listed groups to start ups and SMEs. She is also an expert on data protection law.
Managing Partner Mike Watson advised, “We are delighted to be announcing our new Partners. We are pleased to recognise the talent that we have within the business by promoting Mariana and Louise and welcoming Melia who will boost our restructuring and insolvency offering. The appointments will support our ongoing growth in the region as our reputation continues to grow.”
