The Team

When clients have a critical business decision to make, they need advisors who work with them as part of their team, who understand the technicalities of the law - and how to apply it - but who don’t go overboard with the ‘legals’.

In brief, they need lawyers who speak fluent business. At Steele Raymond, a deep understanding of business is in our DNA. Our proactive commercial lawyers know how vital deadlines are to clients. We understand the difference between their ‘must-haves’ and their ‘nice-to-haves’.

Above all, we focus on the bigger picture, helping them to allocate business risk and deal with the things that really matter to them.

The Firm

We are a leading regional firm based in Bournemouth providing high quality commercial and private client services. We have been continuously Legal 500 ‘top tier’ rated for the last 13 years in our main practice areas of company & commercial, commercial property and commercial dispute resolution. Our private client offering is a significant and growing part of our practice and offers high quality private client services.

We have a very clear strategy of sustained growth and client excellence. Our two offices have been totally refurbished and we have invested in IT, marketing and practice management. We have significantly grown in the last few years by attracting excellent new partners and senior team members from other regional firms. We are very proud of our values and friendly, supportive culture. We actively encourage staff to develop their potential and provide excellent prospects for career progression and promotion.

We actively encourage all partners and staff to develop their potential and provide excellent prospects for career progression and promotion.

Put simply, we aim to be the best at looking after our clients.
