A leading Suffolk law firm has joined 17 other leading organisations to become the latest patron of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce.

Gotelee Solicitors is the largest Suffolk-only legal partnership in the county, with four offices in Felixstowe, Hadleigh, Ipswich and Woodbridge employing 120 people.

The company offers a wide range of services for both businesses and individuals and has grown considerably over the last few years. Suffolk Chamber’s patron scheme is a strategic partnership between an organisation and the chamber. It allows patrons to take advantage of Suffolk Chamber’s connections and so influence policy at a national level.

Charles Rowett, chief executive of Gotelee said: “we are committed to supporting local business across Suffolk, especially in the SME market which is so important to our region. Having worked closely with the Chamber on a number of events and key issues over the last year or so, we saw significant benefits from becoming a patron.”
