Leading regional law firm Trethowans has expanded its corporate and commercial team with the appointment of Jamie Earley as an associate.

It is the second addition to the team in as many months, as the company continues to grow in the wake of its merger with Poole-based Dickinson Manser.

Jamie (pictured right) is a corporate lawyer specialising in acquisitions and disposals, with particular experience in the IT sector. His role at Trethowans will also see him act for companies and individuals in relation to shareholder, LLP and partnership agreements.

Jamie said: ‘I’m very pleased to be joining the Trethowans team, particularly at this exciting time of growth. The firm has a fantastic reputation not just for its work but also the way it looks after its staff. I’m looking forward to contributing to the company’s already stellar success.’

Mike Watson, head of the corporate and commercial team, added: ‘Jamie has a superb track record in helping businesses to grow. We are delighted to have him on board and to continue to grow the strength and offering of our corporate team.’
