After a busy 2019 for the firm, which saw multiple new appointments in several key areas, Steele Raymond LLP have begun the new year by welcoming more top legal talent to their expanding Property Group.
Deborah Fenton, a specialist conveyancing solicitor, joins Steele Raymond’s Residential Property team as Associate Solicitor after five years at a local firm, where she held the position of Head of Conveyancing and led her team on a broad range of residential property and conveyancing matters. Prior to this, she spent seven years working for a Lexcel accredited legal 500 firm in Hertfordshire.
Speaking on her appointment, Deborah said: “Having worked exclusively in residential conveyancing for over 16 years, there is very little I haven’t come across and I felt that Steele Raymond could offer me a higher calibre of work than other firms in the area. I was attracted by the firm’s great reputation across the region and the opportunity to work alongside some of the best solicitors in all areas of property law.”
Chris Twaits, Partner and Head of Commercial Property at Steele Raymond said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for the firm, and we are delighted to be welcoming a solicitor with Deborah’s experience and expertise to our growing Residential Property team.
“Deborah’s arrival at Steele Raymond comes at a time of marked expansion across all teams in our Property Group, who have recently moved into a dedicated office space at Granville Chambers on Richmond Hill in Bournemouth. Deborah is an excellent addition to our residential property operation.”
Discussing her approach to residential conveyancing, Deborah said:
“The experience that I have gained over the years in my previous roles in Hertfordshire and Dorset have given me a clear understanding of what works, and my focus is always on providing a very proactive and efficient service whilst ensuring that the client’s position is always my key concern.”
She continued by saying:
“In my experience, a law firm is only as good as the reputation of its people and this is something that Steele Raymond undoubtedly has.”
