Theo Tendler joins the Employment team at Steele Raymond

Steele Raymond’s Employment Law Team continues to expand


Dorset solicitors Steele Raymond has continued its growth by welcoming newly qualified solicitor Theo Tendler to its leading Employment Law Team in Bournemouth.

Theo completed his two-year training contract within the firm and now joins the highly regarded Employment law team at Steele Raymond, which specialises in dealing with complex employment disputes across a range of sectors including construction, education and manufacturing.

Speaking about his qualification into the employment team, Theo said:

“I am tremendously proud to be qualifying into Steele Raymond’s Employment Team. The training programme at Steele Raymond has been incredibly varied and has provided the sort of rigorous, commercial legal training that will equip me for life as a newly-qualified solicitor.”

Theo’s appointment follows the recent arrival of experienced employment solicitor, Deborah West, as Head of Employment Law at Steele Raymond.

Theo added:

“It is pleasing to know that I will be working alongside Deborah and Peter, whose experience and expertise is colossal. I am in no doubt that they will each play a significant role in my future development as an employment lawyer.”

The Steele Raymond employment team already has an excellent reputation across Dorset and the South Coast, having consistently been recognised for its employment law expertise as one of the leading firms across the South West by the latest edition of the leading independent guide to the UK legal profession, The Legal 500.

The effect of the Covid-19 pandemic has been debilitating for many businesses, who have had to juggle the health and well-being of staff alongside business overheads and a downturn in income. With business-owners also having to navigate the complexities of the furlough scheme, and in some cases, a redundancy process, the demand for commercial legal advice has been unprecedented.

Theo continued:

“The employment relationship is, in essence, the legal link between employer and employee. However, it is a relationship with people at its heart. An understanding of that human element of employment law is essential to being able to deal effectively with the legal and commercial challenges that it can present.”

Deborah West, Head of Employment at Steele Raymond, said:

“We are delighted that Theo has joined the Employment Law Team in Bournemouth. Theo has worked incredibly hard throughout his training contract with the firm and will continue to be a real asset to our clients. Theo is yet again another example of the quality of legal talent nurtured throughout the firm and the successful and rewarding journey from university to solicitor. It shows what a fantastic trainee programme we have developed to attract such talent to continue their careers with us”.
