Solicitors in Dorset


Located in south-west England is the county of Dorset. The county is famous for its Jurassic Coast which is a World Heritage site. It is traditionally well known for its agriculture, but due to the increased use of mechanism and importing in the last few decades agriculture has not been as big an employer in Dorset as it once was. However, cattle, sheep and pig farming still play at large part of the farming industry in the county.

Dorset is also home to popular holiday resorts in England such as Bournemouth, Weymouth and Poole and tourism is an extremely important revenue stream for the county. One event that is certain to boost the county’s tourism is the fact that Dorset will be hosting the sailing event in the 2012 Olympics. Solicitors in Dorset will often deal with tourism-based matters of law.

Dorset is home to a large number of towns. Each of these towns either has their own county court or may share a county court with a neighbouring town. For instance Bournemouth has its own county court located at the Courts of Justice, Deansleigh Road, Bournemouth, BH7 7DS. In contrast, Weymouth and Dorchester share a county court known as the Weymouth and Dorchester Combined Court Centre, located at Westwey House, Westwey Road, Weymouth, DT4 8TE.

A few examples of when you would be required to visit a county court are if you wish to petition for divorce, bring a civil claim against another individual or file for bankruptcy. It is always advised that you seek specialist legal advice from solicitors in Dorset before taking an action to court, and we can direct you to suitable solicitors in Dorset who can provide you with the correct pre-action advice you require.
