So why should you join us?

Our firm is, at heart, a people business. For us, the law isn’t an abstract concept, rather it is something that is at the core of people’s lives and businesses.


That’s why we’re a firm with a human side. We enjoy what we do and we hope that it shows. Many of our partners trained at the firm and are now some of the leading lawyers in the region. Our staff retention rates are high.


As a Legal 500 ‘top tier’ firm, we believe in rewarding hard work, determination and excellence, but we also recognise that working in the law can, at times, be challenging. 


That’s why we can offer you a supportive working environment and the professional training and development you need. As a people business, looking after you is as important as looking after our clients.

Our Private Client Team

We know that when life is busy - getting married, having children, buying a new home,  or perhaps separating—the simple step of making a will to reflect new circumstances is often overlooked. 


Our trusted wills and probate solicitors guide clients through the process of securing their loved ones’ futures and making sure their assets go where they want them to. 


Our sympathetic probate solicitors can help clients deal with the complexities of managing a loved one’s estate after they die. At Steele Raymond, we help clients care for those who matter to them the most.

Careers at Steele Raymond

Our continued success is thanks to our people: our partners, our solicitors and our support staff.


But we never take that success for granted.


As a firm, we are always on the lookout for talented people who want to build on our success and play an exciting part in our future.

Our Story

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


So the moment a client walks through our doors, pick up the phone or sends us an email, we do everything we can to help them achieve the outcome they want.


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 our clients and their interests.
