Leading Dorset commercial law firm Steele Raymond LLP is delighted to announce that it has once again been recognised as one of Dorset and the South West's leading law firms in the latest edition of independent industry bible The Legal 500.
The firm has once again been awarded the highest possible “Top Tier” ranking that the Guide awards in its main commercial areas of Company Commercial, Commercial Property and Dispute Resolution, underlining its continuing dominance in these areas. This is the 10th year running that the firm has received top tier rankings, with the guide also providing recommendations and positive comments in the areas of Employment, Private Client and Education.
The Legal 500 has been published for over twenty years, providing the most comprehensive coverage currently available on legal service providers. Used by commercial and private clients, corporate counsel, CEOs, FDs and professional advisers – both nationally and internationally – the series is widely regarded as offering the definitive reference work on UK law firms.
Rankings are determined by the Legal 500 through a combination of submissions made by firms demonstrating the quality and depth of their work and client base, as well as independent interviews carried out with clients themselves.
The guide contains the following comments on Steele Raymond’s Corporate and Commercial offering: “Recent highlights include advising the president of Sunseeker in relation to the luxury yacht maker’s £300m takeover, and acting on the sale of Bath Travel Limited. Practice head Tim Stone has a wealth of experience.”
Of the firm’s Dispute Resolution services, the guide had this to say: “Steele Raymond LLP always provides clear, concise and commercial advice in a timely manner.”
Commenting on the latest rankings, Chairman Tim Stone said:
“I am delighted to see this independent recognition that Steele Raymond continues to maintain its dominant position at the heart of commercial law in Dorset and the South Coast. We have once again received the highest possible ranking that the Guide awards in our three core practice areas, the result of a great team effort and something that we can all be very proud of.”
