Trethowans celebrates double promotion and two new appointments
Leading Dorset-based law firm Trethowans, which has offices in Bournemouth and Poole, has announced a double promotion and welcomed two new associates.
The firm has promoted Jonathan Sherman to senior associate in its corporate team, where he specialises in mergers, acquisitions and disposals, company law, employee share schemes and shareholders agreements.
Since joining Trethowans in 2019, Jonathan has been instrumental in growing the corporate team and winning new clients as well as helping to set up the firm’s sustainability committee.
Jonathan said: “I am pleased to have been promoted to the role of senior associate at such an exciting time for both the firm and the corporate team. Trethowans has been a great place to work since I joined over three years ago and I have enjoyed in particular working with colleagues and advising numerous clients on the successful sale of their business.
“I look forward to contributing to the corporate team’s continued growth in 2023 and continuing my development with the firm.”
The firm’s second promotion is in its family team, with Jacqueline Reeves promoted to associate. Jacqueline, who has worked in family law since 2005 and joined Trethowans in 2019, is known for her ability to empathise with clients, who she supports on cases relating to divorce, financial provision, child arrangements and non-molestation and injunction proceedings.
Jacqueline said: “The team at Trethowans has been incredibly supportive over the past four years since I joined and I’m thrilled to have been made an associate.
“My role providing clients with both practical and legal advice on how to move forward when they’re going through a divorce is greatly rewarding. Equally I really enjoy supporting junior members of the team with their development.
“I’m looking forward to seeing our team go from strength to strength in 2023.”
Trethowans is also celebrating the arrival of two new associates, with Clare Bland joining the private client team and Bethanie Watson joining in commercial property.
Having qualified in 2019, Clare brings experience in advising clients on wills, powers of attorney, estate administration, application for probate and inheritance tax planning.
She said: “I enjoy private client work as I get to build long-lasting relationships with clients while helping them during difficult times.
“I was drawn to Trethowans for its culture and values as well as its great work. I’m excited to get started and support the firm with its ambitious growth plans in 2023.”
In her new role Bethanie will be dealing with all areas of commercial property practice, with a particular focus on commercial and residential development.
She said: “I’m excited to have joined the well-respected team at Trethowans and am looking forward to working with a range of clients, from developers and builders to homeowners, commercial landlords and tenants.
“I pride myself on delivering clear advice which is free of legal jargon and helping businesses and individuals to achieve their aims.”
