Mazars in Poole
Our Poole office
Poole sits on the south coast of Dorset, home of the largest natural harbour in Europe. It is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, at the entry to England’s longest walking trail, the South West Coastal path.
Poole Harbour has been a centre of trade since the Norman Conquest and is still a thriving gateway to the rest of the world. It is home to the RNLI and the Royal Marines, as well as the endangered red squirrel.
Mazars has been in Poole since 1986, firstly as Neville Russell, before joining the Mazars global partnership in 1998. Based in the iconic Merck House, our market-leading team supports businesses and individuals along the south coast and beyond.
