Our Story

Steele Raymond: Our History

Placing your trust in a law firm is a big decision and one not to be made lightly.

So the moment you walk through our doors, pick up the phone or send us an email, we do everything we can to help you achieve the outcome you want.

Making Experience Count

As you’d expect, our lawyers know the law inside and out. More importantly though, they know how to apply it in practice.

But we’d be the first to say that this isn’t always enough.

At Steele Raymond, we know that we wouldn’t be where we are today - and couldn’t give the focussed and real-world advice that we do - without the support of our region’s flourishing business community.

For almost 40 years our lawyers have worked together with leading businesses, pre-eminent individuals and key stakeholders in Dorset and the surrounding region: from the Dorset Growth Hub to Bournemouth Borough Council, from local chambers of commerce to the latest digital initiatives.

Being anchored in the community in this way means that we’ve been well-placed to play an important part in helping to make our region thrive.

And as the region has grown, so have we.

Our experienced lawyers have a leading reputation in our region and have consistently been awarded the highest rankings in the independent guide to the legal profession: the Legal 500 UK Edition.

We continue to do all we can to support local businesses through networking opportunities, thought leadership and strategic alliances.

As you would expect from a full-service firm we also offer a wide range of high-quality private client services including the sale and purchase of residential property, wills, probate & estate planning, employment and family.

Our team remain as focussed as ever on being the very best at looking after you and your interests. 

At Steele Raymond, you can count on our experience to get the advice you need, when you need it.
