Frettens Solicitors are delighted to announce that Carl Geary has been promoted to become a Partner at the firm.

Carl has been at Frettens since 2007, initially as a paralegal and then beginning a training contract, the final stage of qualification as a solicitor. He qualified into the Dispute Resolution Team and has dealt with all aspects of litigation since then, building vast experience. He has particular aptitude for property related disputes and in assisting landlords and tenants, but Carl has also successfully completed the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists (ACTAPS) course, which demonstrates his expertise in disputes over wills and inheritances.

Michelle Hayter, a Partner and Head of the Dispute Resolution Team, says “Carl has proved himself to be not only an excellent litigator but a valuable asset to my team and our firm. The high quality of work that he attracts is worthy of note and I am personally delighted to acknowledge his achievements with this promotion.”

Matthew Fretten, Managing Partner, comments “Over the last ten years, Carl has developed into a talented lawyer, a trusted and professional advisor to his clients and a popular, reliable member of staff. He has been a shining example of delivering the high-quality service that clients expect from Frettens. It is particularly pleasing to note that both of our most recent Partner appointments are solicitors who have trained at Frettens and progressed through the ranks, indeed Carl has responsibility for mentoring our current Trainees. We are extremely pleased to welcome Carl to the Partnership and look forward to his input into the growth and development of the firm as we move forward.”
