‘Premier League signing’ as legal big hitter joins Ellis Jones

One of Dorset’s biggest legal hitters has joined Ellis Jones Solicitors in what the firm is describing as akin to a ‘Premier League signing’.

Robert Bajaj is appointed a consultant after 24 years at another Bournemouth-based practice where he was a Partner, Board member and, latterly, Dispute Resolution Team Leader.

Robert is a specialist in property and commercial disputes with experience in landlord and tenant, land disputes and agricultural land claims.

He also has significant regulatory experience, having acted for national companies and individuals in prosecutions across the UK, as well as advising on licence applications for new premises, variations and all licensing matters.

The UK’s leading law sector directory – The Legal 500 – described Robert’s knowledge in his field as “amazing” and considered him “quick and efficient.”

Nigel Smith, Ellis Jones’ Managing Partner, said: “By any measure, Robert is one of the biggest hitters on the local legal scene and we’re absolutely delighted to have secured his services. This really is our equivalent of a Premier League signing.

“Robert will further strengthen our dispute resolution team, bringing extra fire power to what is already an impressive and highly experienced group of experts.”

Robert, who trained with a large commercial regional practice in Southampton, said: “I pride myself on a ‘no nonsense’ approach, getting to the heart of the problem and providing commercial and practical advice to resolve the issues.

“I have watched with interest Ellis Jones’ growth, particularly in recent years, and I’m very pleased to be joining such a progressive and expanding firm.”

Robert can be contacted at or telephone 01202 525333.
