Trethowans Trainees qualify as Solicitors

19 Sep 2019

Trethowans is pleased to announce that their second year trainees have successfully qualified as solicitors after completing their training contract with the firm.

Each of the qualified solicitors, Gerrard Tin, Zach Rooney and Kira McKane have also been offered and accepted full-time roles with the firm. The decision to retain all three trainees comes as the law firm prepares for continued growth in 2020 and beyond, having reported a significant increase in revenue earlier this year. It brings the number of employees at Trethowans to an impressive 246 partners and staff.

Gerrard will join the banking team based in Trethowans’ Bournemouth office and Zach will qualify into the commercial property team based in Trethowans’ Salisbury office. Kira will join the employment team in Trethowans’ Southampton office.

The trio pass on the baton to four new trainees, who have joined the award-winning law firm in recent weeks.

Trethowans’ Managing Partner Chris Whiteley said: “The fact we’ve given all of our trainees permanent roles with the firm is proof that we’re positive about the future. Having the right team in place will allow us to build upon the strong growth we’ve already achieved.”

Trethowans has seen revenue increase by a huge 60 per cent since 2015, with its annual gross revenue currently standing at £17.6m. Its workforce has also doubled in that time, with 246 Partners and staff now working across Bournemouth, Poole, Southampton, Salisbury, Winchester and London.
