Ellisons Solicitors are pleased to announce the opening of their new Ipswich office this June.

Located at Wherstead Park, (also home to the East of England Cooperative), Ellisons opened its doors on Monday 2nd June 2014.

The new office will be home to two of Ellisons Partners, Robert Gair (Personal Injury lawyer) and Julian Outen (Employment law specialist), and will also have a regular presence from Commercial Property Partner, Toby Kramers; all well-known figures in the Suffolk area. In addition, Ellisons have recruited five other permanent fee earners and three secretaries to be based there. Guy Longhurst (Senior Partner) and Tim Logan (Head of Private Client) will also have a regular presence in Ipswich.

Guy Longhurst, Senior Partner of Ellisons Solicitors, said: ‘‘We are delighted to open a new office in Ipswich this summer, which coincides with our 250th anniversary celebrations. We have numerous clients in Suffolk and so it made perfect sense to open an additional office here. We look forward to welcoming new clients to the firm and building upon our relationships within Suffolk.’’

Guy continued: ‘‘Just last month we supported the Suffolk Show, which is of course a major event in the region’s calendar. It gave us a great opportunity to meet with the show organisers, people from the local community, as well as to host some of our Ipswich clients. We certainly look forward to being actively involved in further events in Suffolk in the near future.’’

Robert Gair, Head of Claimant PI, said: ‘‘After spending a brief period in Colchester I am very pleased to be back in Ipswich where I have been in practice for over 25 years. All of us in the new Ipswich office are excited at this new venture, and are looking forward to developing the strong foundations of Ellisons in this area, still further.”

Ellisons services at the Ipswich office will mirror that of their other offices and will include: Commercial Property, Corporate Commercial, Dispute Resolution, Employment, Insurance Litigation and Licensing for businesses; together with Dispute Resolution, Family, Personal Injury, Wills, Trusts and Probate as well Residential Property, for individuals.
