Elizabeth Ryall will head up the firm’s commercial recoveries team in Southampton while Lucy Spollin will lead the residential property team in Winchester.

Elizabeth joins the firm with over 15 years’ experience in debt recovery working for both commercial and private clients in a variety of sectors, such as vehicle finance, utilities and property.

She said: “My initial impressions of Trethowans are fantastic. I’ve met some immensely talented and smart colleagues and been enthused by the supportive and collegiate approach. I’m really excited to contribute to such a dynamic and friendly firm.”

Lucy boasts over 15 years’ experience in the property sector specialising in the sale and purchase of residential property, mortgages and re-mortgages, lease extensions, development work, deeds of grant and high net-worth homes.

She said: “This is a really exciting move for me. Trethowans is a true leader in its field, and I’m delighted to be helping the firm grow its residential property services in Hampshire. Moving home can be extremely stressful but we’re here to help make that process as easy and streamlined for our clients as possible.”

Mike Watson, managing partner at Trethowans, said: “We’re extremely happy that Elizabeth and Lucy have chosen to join Trethowans and to help us grow our existing services, I welcome them both to the team and wish them every success.”
