OUTSTANDING work by a law firm's banking partner has been recognised with a top award.
Sophie Eales, from Trethowans, which sponsors The News’ Business Excellence Awards, was given a top award at the Solent Deals Award 2018.
She was named Lawyer of the Year in the awards, with judges citing her experience in cross-department work and expertise in working in multi-disciplinary teams on a wide range of deals for her win.
Sophie joined Trethowans three years ago and has led the development of a dedicated banking team.
She said: ‘This is a tremendous accolade and I’m delighted to have won. To have a dedicated banking team is unusual and it’s working extremely well to have the expertise clients need under one roof.’
