Ellisons’ Ispwich team has recently been offering free drop-in surgeries to residents who would like to join the Private Client team for tea or coffee and a slice of cake, while chatting through any legal matters they’d like more information about.
These matters can include Wills, trust administration, powers of attorney, probate, funding of care fees and court protection.
The next surgery is:
- Chelmondiston Village Hall – 10th August, 10am – 12.30pm

The first of the free drop-in surgeries was held in Shotley on Friday 27th July 2018, which saw Jennie Kingham speak to a number of local residents. For the next surgeries newly promoted lawyers, Catherine Frost and Katie Mayes will be there.
This September Ellisons will also be offering residents of Ipswich and the surrounding area, discounted Wills. Earlier this year, financial website, Unbiased revealed that 60% of adults don’t have a Will, taking the total to an all-time high and passing the previous peak in 2011.During Ellisons Will Week, which is taking place between 24th and 28th September 2018, Ellisons is offering to prepare a simple Will at a reduced price of 75.00 plus VAT at its Ipswich branch.

The importance of having a Will in place is often underestimated, but it is particularly important for those with dependants and major financial commitments. Furthermore with 42% of marriages in England and Wales ending in divorce, it is important to have Wills reviewed and updated as any existing Will becomes invalid once you enter a new marriage.
Tim Logan, Senior Partner & Head of Private Client Services at Ellisons said: “During our Wills Week we are offering Wills discounted by more than 50% of our normal fee, in the hope that we can drive home the message that it is vital to protect your loved ones in the event of your death. A Will makes things much easier for those left behind as there will be clear instructions as to what is to happen to your estate, allowing everything to be dealt with more efficiently. Ellisons is proud of the excellent Will service it offers to its clients, and its commitment to building the firm’s specialism and expertise in Ipswich.”
