About us

We are a full service law firm offering support to businesses and individuals based on the following principles.


We respect our clients and colleagues and build long lasting relationships with trust, courtesy and dignity

If you are a new client to the firm your first meeting with us is always free. We believe people shouldn’t be put off seeking help for fear of being charged just to be told they don’t have a case.


By encouraging our clients to speak freely helps create an environment in which all input is valued and everyone can make a worthwhile contribution

We use plain English and don’t hide behind complex ‘legalese’

We share knowledge and expertise. We publish blogs, articles and news on the subjects that matter to our clients free of charge – take a look here


We build relationships through cooperation and communication and put our clients at the heart of everything we do


Simply, we choose to do new things to create value for our clients without being constrained by what has been done in the past or what others are doing today

Our offices

We have offices in Eastbourne and Hastings allowing us to assist individuals and businesses with their legal needs all across East Sussex.

Our history

Stephen Rimmer LLP was founded in 1981 by Stephen Rimmer. We have enjoyed steady growth since then and now have over one hundred Solicitors and staff.  A lot of the expansion has come from personal recommendation from our clients and business colleagues.

Free initial meeting

A free initial chat with one of our experts will last around 30 minutes, this can be over the telephone, by video link or at our offices by appointment.  If needed, we may be able to come to your home.


The Solicitors Regulation Authority specifies the minimum level of cover as £3 million for any one claim, in order to better our clients we have chosen to have cover in place of up to £15 million as well as comprehensive cyber security cover.


We have been granted many quality standard marks and are members of LawNet.
