Law firm Steele Raymond has appointed an experienced private client solicitor to join its expanding team.

Bournemouth-born Harriet Dormer (née Mitchell) grew up in the Talbot Woods area of the town, before heading to nearby Southampton University to study politics.

She later attended Oxford Brookes University, where she completed a Graduate Diploma in Law, finishing her studies at BPP University, London, where she gained a distinction in her Legal Practice Course (LPC).

On her return to Bournemouth, Harriet joined a local firm where she completed her training contract and found her niche in private client work, before making the move to Bournemouth-based Steele Raymond.

She specialises in helping clients with probate and estate administration, Will drafting, Lasting Power of Attorney preparation and Enduring Power of Attorney registration.

In addition, Harriet is also experienced in dealing with Court of Protection applications, a process by which a person’s interests are safeguarded if they lack the mental capacity to take decisions for themselves.

Sue Adams, Partner and Private Client Team Leader, said: “We are delighted to welcome Harriet to the firm and to the private client team.

“As a STEP (Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners) qualified solicitor, Harriet brings with her a wealth of experience and expertise and promises to be a fantastic addition to our ever-expanding firm.”
