Clarke & Simpson, which employs around 50 staff, said it decided on the move after it was approached by three professionals based in the west of the county who wanted to join the team.

Partner Christopher Clarke said: “We were delighted to take them on. It has been a very unexpected opportunity. They approached us, and wanted to join us, and we are delighted they are joining our agricultural team.”

The arrival of Eleanor Havers, James Baker and Sarah Bullard will strengthen the firm’s agricultural department.

Although they will be based at the Framlingham headquarters for now, the firm is hoping to set up a satellite office between Bury St Edmunds and Stowmarket for them.
