Website people profile – Hero 1440×800 (1)

Trethowans is proud to announce the 10th anniversary of United Law, a regional support network designed to empower independent law firms across Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and West Sussex. Since its inception, United Law has been dedicated to fostering collaboration, providing mutual support and enhancing the service capabilities of its member firms.

Established a decade ago by Trethowans, United Law offers a platform for independent law firms to refer clients, access a wide range of legal services and maintain strong client relationships. The network’s free membership model and comprehensive benefits have made it an indispensable resource for local legal professionals.

United Law member Nigel Craig, Director at Hentys, commented: “I joined United Law when it was set up in 2014. I was practising in an LLP with a partner who specialised in employment law, and United Law gave us the ability to find experts and specialists in areas of work that we did not cover.

United Law has been enormously helpful. Emma is quick to respond and help me find the right person for my clients. My clients have always been delighted with the service which then reflects well on my recommendation. From time to time United Law have organised updates on a number of topics. Those that I have attended have always been well run and provided useful information.”

Emma Whiteley, Business Development Manager for United Law, added: “United Law continues to thrive, showcasing the strength of collaboration and mutual support within the legal community. As we celebrate this milestone, we extend our thanks to all United Law members and partners for their support and engagement.”
