Dorset law firm Trethowans has appointed Robert Bajaj as a partner in the commercial litigation team.

A solicitor in Bournemouth for 28 years, he specialises in commercial disputes, commercial property issues and insolvency and has acted on behalf of a wide range of clients, including FTSE 100 firms.

According to the Legal 500 industry ‘bible’ Mr Bajaj has “amazing knowledge” in his field as well as being quick and efficient.

Trethowans’ commercial team and its Bournemouth office have experienced significant growth in the last year.

The corporate team has seen turnover increase by 16 per cent on last year, with recent deal values ranging between £750,000 and £35m.

Meanwhile, the Bournemouth office has outgrown its existing space so quickly that it’s already in talks to expand.

Chris Whiteley, Managing Partner, said: “The reaction to our Bournemouth office has been impressive and we’re pleased to report that we’re expanding our team even further.

“Robert will play an important part in the further growth of the team in Dorset in coming years and his advice will be of real value to our clients.”

Trethowans has offices in Southampton, Salisbury, Poole, Bournemouth and Winchester with a base in London.

The company is a UK Top 150 law firm and employs more than 200 people, including 45 partners.
