Salisbury: Law firm Trethowans appoints new partner

Chris Pemberton has been appointed as a partner by regional law firm Trethowans. The private client specialist will be based in Salisbury, following high levels of demand for Trethowans’ services in the city.

Pemberton has extensive experience in all areas of private client work, including the administration of estates and probate, setting up trusts, tax planning, drafting wills, and powers of attorney.

He said: “I’m thrilled to be taking up this senior post in Salisbury. Much of my work centres on the administration of estates belonging to farmers and landowners – and there is certainly a great deal of demand for this in Wiltshire.

“Having already had the chance to meet my new colleagues here, I have great confidence we will continue to provide a service that is second-to-none for our clients.”

Pemberton also works with families, advising on trusts for those who have learning difficulties – and is included on Mencap’s panel of recommended advisers. He is a registered trust and estate practitioner with STEP and has been recognised in the Legal 500 publication.

Chris Whiteley, managing partner of Trethowans, added: “In Salisbury, our reputation is attracting some wonderful legal talent – and Chris Pemberton is an excellent addition to our superb team here.

“We’re delighted he has decided to join us during this period of growth for Trethowans in the city. I have no doubt his leadership skills and experience will prove invaluable to our team and to our private clients.”
