As the largest Dorset law firm and with a strong presence in Southampton and London, Lester Aldridge understands the importance of building supportive local relationships and also giving back to the communities they work within.
The firm has built a strong relationship with Dorset Chamber over many years, appreciating the support the chamber provides for the local community. Lester Aldridge supported the Dorset Business Awards for many years and more recently the chamber’s GU6 and Fit for the Future programmes.
Lester Aldridge has been Platinum Partners of the Chamber for many years and to further demonstrate their commitment has joined AFC Bournemouth and online marketplace OnBuy to become one of just three Premier Partners in the top tier of membership.
Dorset Chamber chief executive Ian Girling said: “Lester Aldridge is a heavyweight business which is a valuable addition to our top tier.
“Its new role recognises the firm’s longstanding and exceptional support for the Chamber and our work in the business community.
“It builds on a longstanding and valued relationship, which has ranged from the Dorset Business Awards to recent health and wellbeing initiatives, including the trailblazing Got Your Six and menopause campaigns.
“All at the chamber look forward to working even more closely with Lester Aldridge in the future.”
The business partners programme is for members which wish to play a greater role in supporting the chamber. Lester Aldridge is the only law firm as a business partner.
Lester Aldridge Partner and Head of Corporate & Commercial, Grant Esterhuizen said: “Dorset Chamber leads a vibrant and incredibly supportive business community.
“We’re proud to gain Premier Business Partnership status and are committed to playing an ever greater part in the chamber’s success in the future.”
