Essex and Suffolk law firm Ellisons Solicitors has moved into a larger office at Wherstead Park, near Ipswich, due to expansion of its local team.

Ellisons orignally opened its first Suffolk base at Wherstead Park – also the headquarters of the East of England Co-op – in June 2014.

The team, led by Julian Outen, head of employment, and Robert Gair, head of personal injury (both partners in the firm), also includes one assiciate, five lawyers and six secretaries and, with further recruitment planned, they have now moved into a neighbouring office, twice the size of the original.

Guy Longhurst, senior partner at Ellisons Solicitors, said: “The Ipswich office has been a huge success, and bigger premises is further evidence of that. Our Suffolk client base continues to grow and as such the need for more lawyers and support staff has become vital to ensuring our clients receive the excellent client experience they have come to expect.”

Nick Denny, joint chief executive of the East of England Co-op, added: “I am delighted Ellisons have made such an impact in the Suffolk market in such a short space of time that they require more office space.

Ellisons’ services at the Ipswich office mirror those of its other offices at Colchester, Clacton-on-Sea, Frinton-on-Sea and Dovercourt. All contact details for the Ipswich office remain unchanged.
