Trethowans makes senior appointment as employment team goes from strength to strength
Leading regional law firm Trethowans has bolstered its employment and immigration team with the appointment of new partner, Kathryn Casey-Evans.
It comes as Trethowans’ employment and immigration team has once again been ranked as among the best in the South and continues to attract an enviable list of major new clients.
Kathryn joins Trethowans having previously worked as an associate in a large regional firm for the last eight years. Throughout her career Kathryn has worked on cases for some of the biggest brand names in the UK, including high street retailers, charities, football clubs, manufacturing giants and blue chip firms. With expertise in dispute resolution and mediation, she focuses on providing the best commercial solutions for employers of all sizes and types.
Kathryn joins an already successful employment and immigration team at Trethowans, which advises companies across the South on a range of employment and immigration issues from boardroom disputes, outsourcing and restructuring to business immigration and employment tribunals.
Simon Rhodes, senior partner at Trethowans, heads up the employment and immigration team. He said: "Kathryn has an outstanding reputation for offering practical and commercial advice which helps businesses to prosper and grow. She has a great track record of delivering the outcomes her clients want and we are delighted to have her in our team.”
Kathryn’s appointment comes as Trethowans is seeing significant growth and industry praise. In the last three months, the firm has expanded through its merger with Dickinson Manser in Poole and received critical acclaim in both The Legal 500 and Chambers UK 2016.
Kathryn commented: “The employment and immigration team is a leading team in the South. Simon and I have known each other for years and we adopt a similar approach to our clients. We both focus heavily on building strong and sustainable relationships with our clients by offering them practical and commercial legal advice. We will undoubtedly make a great team.
“Trethowans promotes a great culture for its staff which fits squarely with my core values. The firm has grown at an impressive rate over the last few years. This is a great testament to the quality of the firm and the lawyers within it. It’s a really exciting time to be joining Trethowans and I am very much looking forward to building even further on its great reputation.”
