A LAW firm has moved its growing property teams into a landmark Bournemouth building.

Steele Raymond, based on Richmond Hill, has moved 26 members of staff into Granville Chambers.

The office will be a hub for the residential property, commercial property, residential development and pension property investment teams – collectively known as the property group.

Steele Raymond’s residential development and commercial property teams have achieved an average of 20 per cent year-on-year growth for the past three years.

The move has also created space for expansion of the family, private client, dispute resolution, employment and company and commercial teams at its Richmond Point base.

Chris Waits, partner and head of commercial property, said: “Our property teams have achieved a fantastic level of growth over the last few years by offering a very proactive, expert and senior lawyer-led service. Our new space will allow our specialist property lawyers to work collaboratively in accommodation designed specifically for them.”

The property group has been bolstered by several recent appointments. Residential property associate Georgina Du Pon has joined the firm after eight years at leading London solicitors Farrer & Co, whilst the residential development team has been strengthened by the appointment of partner Chris Dolan.
