History & Philosophy

Dorrington Poole Lawyers was founded in 1914 by Percy Dorrington. Marcus Poole joined the partnership in 1948 and held a practising certificate until 2006. 

In 1990 a merger took place with Dobson Smith & Co. The current partners have a direct relationship with these firms with Nicola Roberts being a partner in Dorrington Poole (and daughter of Marcus Poole) and Stuart Smith being a partner of Dobson Smith & Co.
The firm still acts for families of some of the earliest clients. The long term relationship with those clients gives continuity in a fast changing world. Our Partners, lawyers and staff are proud to be part of a culture that values its clients and provides quality professional advice in a relaxed and rural friendly manner.
