Mariana Crawford announced as Head of Salisbury Residential Property at Trethowans

Mariana Crawford has taken on the role of Head of Salisbury Residential Property at Trethowans, a leading law firm in the south of England.

Having joined the firm 7 years ago as a solicitor in the Residential Property team, Mariana was rapidly promoted to Associate in 2017, Senior Associate in 2020 and Partner in April 2023. She has over 20 years’ experience in a diverse mix of property transactions, including advising clients in all aspects of residential property, including but not limited to the selling, buying and remortgaging of freehold and leasehold property, with a notably strong specialism in new build properties. She has been instrumental in the creation and growth of the New Build conveyancing team that sits within the Residential Property team.

Mariana is a well-known and respected figure in the Salisbury business and local community. Originally from South Africa she has strong links to the large South African ex-pat community in the area. She is also a Director and Honorary Solicitor of the Salisbury & District Chamber of Commerce.

Mariana says, “I enjoy some fantastic working relationships in the city with other lawyers, estate agents, mortgage brokers, local and national developers. I’m really looking forward to nurturing my connections in Wiltshire and beyond. I have a brilliant team around me and we seek to provide the best client experience and delivery of outstanding results for our clients. We aim to stand out from the crowd and be the go-to conveyancing team for clients who want to have a smooth and stress-free moving experience. We want our clients to experience the excitement that comes with moving into your dream home and to make the selling and buying process a happy memory.”

“Trethowans is the only firm in Wiltshire which is recognised for its work in High Value Residential in the Chambers High Net Worth Guide 2023 (National Leaders – Outside London). The firm is also recognised for its work in private wealth law.

“Trethowans’ Wiltshire offering is rapidly growing and expanding in all areas, and I am excited to be a part of that work.”

Mike Watson, Managing Partner at Trethowans, said: “Mariana has been an integral member of our Salisbury team since she joined in 2016. She is not only very popular with her clients, but is well regarded in the local business community and plays a key role in the firm’s business development activity. I would like to congratulate Mariana on her promotion and wish her every success in her new role.”
