I have been the Managing Partner of Trethowans since April 2015. As the firm has grown so much over the last few years, I now spend much of my time dealing with the management side. This growth was recognised in a report in the Lawyer Magazine in October 2017, which confirmed that Trethowans was “the fastest growing independent firm in the UK” for firms with a turnover of up to £24m.

Trethowans has a set strategy and vision – with the specific aim of continuing to grow and become a £20m turnover firm whilst maintaining a strong financial position and protecting its culture.

In addition to my role as Managing Partner, I still undertake work specialising in catastrophic head and spinal injury cases, as well as birth related injuries of maximum severity. I have been accredited by the Law Society as a member of their specialist personal injury and clinical negligence panels.

I have also been appointed by the Court of Protection to act as a professional deputy to manage the property and financial affairs of vulnerable adults, and also sit as a Deputy District Judge in London.

I am a Recommended Lawyer in the Legal 500 2021 guide which notes: Chris Whiteley is known for his work on catastrophic head and spinal injury cases’.

Very good with clients and supportive, clients have a lot of trust and faith in him, and he sticks by them and does a good job - Chambers and Partners
