Local relationship bank Handelsbanken becomes new sponsor of the Dorset Law Society.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Martin Dyer, Branch Manager at Handelsbanken in Dorchester said: “Here at Handelsbanken, our approach is unique. We’re decentralised, so our branches make the decisions that matter to our customers.

We don’t have sales targets and we don’t pay bonuses. This means we suggest solutions that work for our customers, and aren’t just designed to maximise profits.

We believe that having a long term relationship is the best way we can really help and we are deeply invested in the local community.

Therefore, it’s important to us to support the Dorset Law Society, as we are pleased to count among our customers solicitors in Dorset and  delighted that this sponsorship will share our unique banking approach with even more people across the legal community in Dorset.

With our long-term relationship approach, we can offer a truly personalised service with a dedicated local account manager for all our customers. Combining our highly experienced team in the branch and local decision- making with a full suite of banking products and services means we can offer the very best banking experience for our clients.”

The Dorset Law Society represents hundreds of solicitors, legal practitioners and associated workers in Dorset and the South West of England.  It also undertakes training and gives support to individual and corporate members.

President of the Dorset Law Society, Lisa Pharaoh, said today, “We are very fortunate to have Handelsbanken as one of the Dorset Law Society’s sponsors. We are delighted that we will be working with Handelsbanken over the next year as one of our select group of preferred providers.

Next year the Dorset Law Society will celebrate its 190th anniversary.  Dorset Law Society was founded in 1835 and has been a leading supporter of the rule of law and rights of the individual for over nearly 200 years.  We are really pleased to partner with Handelsbanken as a preferred supplier and supporter of the Society’s activities.”
