Trethowans receives industry accolade as it continues to expand

14 Nov 2018

Law firm Trethowans has received an impressive 43 mentions in one of the UK’s top legal directories.

The company, which is in the midst of a period of high growth, has seen 20 teams and 23 individuals listed in the latest edition of the Legal 500. It comes as Trethowans expands its reach across the region and holds the title of one of the fastest-growing law firms in the UK.

The Legal 500 independently assesses and ranks law firms. Its research is based on feedback from clients, submissions from law firms, interviews with lawyers and research from a leading team.

Among the Trethowans teams to be listed in the directory were employment, family, agriculture and commercial litigation. Several areas received the very highest accolade with the property, clinical negligence and personal injury teams securing Top Tier Firm status.

The listings have seen Trethowans’ offices in Southampton, Salisbury and Poole all receive praise. With the company’s new office in Bournemouth only opening in recent months, it missed out on inclusion in this year’s directory but partners are already setting their sights on rankings in 2019.

Managing partner Chris Whiteley said: “We are incredibly proud to have increased the number of our teams listed in the Legal 500. It’s testament to the hard work and effort put in by all of our people across the region. What is particularly pleasing is that we are ranked across such a wide range of practice areas on both the corporate and private client side.”

In total, 23 individuals from Trethowans were named in the Legal 500. Bethany Blamire was named as a ‘next generation lawyer’ while a range of partners and solicitors across the region were listed.

“Our people will undoubtedly play an important part in our growth story over the coming years and to know that they are recognised as amongst the best by independent peers is fantastic,” said Chris. “This provides further proof of what a great team we have at Trethowans.”
