Essex and Suffolk law firm Ellisons Solicitors is to expand its Ipswich office for the second time in a year.
Ellisons launched its Ipswich presence in June 2014 by taking space at Wherstead Park, also home to – and owned by – the East of England Co-op.
An increase in the number of staff led to the firm increasing its space in May last year and now, following further growth which has taken its number of personnel on the site to 26, it is to double the size of its unit by removing a wall to expand into an adjoining area.
Guy Longhurst, senior partner of Ellisons, said: “Our Suffolk client base continues to grow and as such the need for more space, lawyers and support staff has become vital to ensuring our clients receive the excellent client experience they have come to expect from Ellisons.”
Besides Ipswich, Ellisons also has offices in Colchester, Clacton-on-Sea, Frinton-on-Sea, Dovercourt and Harwich.
Other organisations with office space at Wherstead Park including P&O, Samskip, New Anglia LEP, Forum Contracts and Camcan.
Nick Denny, joint chief executive of the East of England Co-op, said: “We’re delighted to see Ellisons’ continued success in Suffolk, and pleased that they’re committed to remaining at Wherstead Park, where we were able to provide them with the opportunity to expand their offices.”
