A SOLICITORS firm has made its mark across the region by bagging two awards last week.

In the Dorset Legal Awards last Friday, held at the Bournemouth International Centre, the firm firstly celebrated winning the Personal Injury /Clinical Negligence Team of the Year award.

John Hall of Trethowans said the personal injury team were “pleased” to receive the award and commended staff for their “great work”.

He added: “This is a fantastic achievement and reflects on all of the hard work we have been doing to help our clients with serious and catastrophic injuries caused by accidents, clinical negligence and exposure to asbestos in the county.”

The Family Team of the Year was the second achievement of the night for the firm, and Andrew Mercer, head of Trethowans’ family team, said: “I am extremely proud to be a part of this exceptional family team which has been rightly recognised by the judges for the quality of service, expertise and holistic approach that is shown to all its clients.”
