Trethowans shortlisted for prestigious legal award

22 Sep 2020

Trethowans has been shortlisted for a prestigious Law Society Excellence Award, the highest accolade for law firms in England and Wales.

The firm is a finalist in the ‘Large Law Firm of the Year’ category and will find out whether it has won in a series of online ceremonies from 13-15 October.

Trethowans punches above its weight when it comes to its client list and service offering and has developed a positive ‘No Egos, No Nonsense’ culture. It invests heavily in attracting and retaining the finest legal talent from the Southampton region, with nearly a third of its staff having been with the company over 10 years.

Indeed, the firm is in a strong financial position and has grown its turnover by 66 per cent in just five years, meeting the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic head on and performing strongly across all its service sectors.

Law Society of England and Wales president Simon Davis said: “Congratulations to all those who have been shortlisted. There are more than 9,000 firms and 190,000 solicitors in England and Wales, so to be shortlisted for a Law Society Excellence Award is to be recognised as being among the very best of the best.

“The justice system was already under immense pressure prior to Covid-19 and the situation has been exacerbated by the pandemic, making the incredible work that is being done by solicitors across the country day-in day-out to support their clients more vital than ever.”
