Trethowans Joins Forces with Hampshire Fare

Hampshire Fare are pleased to announce that law firm Trethowans LLP are supporting the local food group through a newly agreed partnership. This partnership was officially launched on the farm of one of Hampshire Fare’s producer members, Bere Mill Farm in Whitchurch, with owner Dinah Nabarro showing the new corporate friends round the picturesque grounds.

This partnership will benefit Hampshire Fare’s members as Trethowans are pleased to offer members of Hampshire Fare the chance to discuss their business challenges and personal queries through a range of means such as attending bespoke seminars and events.

Marcus Thorpe, Partner, Agricultural and Rural Property, Trethowans, comments: “We are looking forward to developing a strong, working partnership with Hampshire Fare. We have a ‘no-nonsense’ approach towards legal matters that should suit Hampshire Fare’s members and their businesses. Trethowans has more than 60 specialist lawyers, who have expertise in virtually every field including mine!”

Tracy Nash, Commercial Manager, Hampshire Fare, adds: “We are hugely enthusiastic about this new partnership which will benefit our members. Trethowans are a really good fit with Hampshire Fare as they have considerable expertise in relevant sectors including farming, hospitality and the food and drink industry. This is a dynamic and approachable law firm and I am confident that the firm’s fresh approach to legal advice will appeal to our members and provide great value. We have agreed to work together on a three-year Corporate Friend basis. This agreement will include a series of items on legal advice supplied by Trethowans and distributed through our monthly members’ newsletters as well as a programme of members-only seminars.”

Trethowans are a leading law firm in the South of England with offices throughout the area including Southampton, Salisbury, Poole, Bournemouth and Winchester. Through its partnership with Hampshire Fare, Trethowans intends raising awareness of legal requirements in business among the group’s members, including financing, managing risk and resolving disputes.

Those attending the launch at Bere Mill Farm included: Marcus Thorpe, Partner and Head of Agricultural and Rural Property; Chris Pemberton, Partner specialising in Private Client work advising farmers and landowners; Sarah Huck, Solicitor, insurance and regulatory, with specialisms in equine law and food safety; plus Tracy Nash, Commercial Manager, and Faye Hallwood, Membership and Events Coordinator, both Hampshire Fare.

Tracy Nash concludes: “I would like to add that at Hampshire Fare we are appreciative of all our Corporate Friends, including Trethowans. Without them Hampshire Fare would not be able to support local producers and contribute to a sustainable future for the county's food and farming industry to the same degree of success that it currently achieves.”
