Law firm Birkett Long has hosted a celebration marking the 25th anniversary of its financial services team.

The afternoon tea event, held at Colchester’s Wivenhoe House Hotel, was attended by colleagues and clients of the the firm, which has offices in Colchester, Chelmsford and Basildon.

The team offers independent advice on many aspects of financial planning, including investments, inheritance tax planning, retirement planning and business protection/key-person assurance.

Nicola Ward, associate and head of financial services at Birkett Long, said: “We thought 25 years was worth celebrating. Our longevity has seen excellent client relationships develop, including looking after generations of families.

“Clients have always appreciated the value of having access to financial services through a large, trusted and well-established legal firm and our longevity provides our clients with much-needed security and peace of mind.

“I can hardly believe it was 25 years ago that I joined the firm and although our means of communication has changed - there were no computers, electronic diaries and certainly no mobile phones then - the value of service to the client is the same. They know that the advice we give is truly independent.”
