Ellisons Solicitors is a new name on Clacton’s Station Road. The leading Essex law firm, with offices also in Colchester, Frinton and Dovercourt was delighted to finally add Clacton to its network of offices on the Tendring peninsula with the merger of PTL Solicitors last May.
Last night, at a reception at the Kingscliff Hotel, some 100 guests – clients and contacts of the Firm from Clacton and the surrounding region – celebrated the merger in style.
Host Nicky Coates, who is the partner responsible for managing both the Frinton and Clacton offices, was happy to welcome everyone to the party. Nicky explained “The merger was significant for Ellisons and we now have a significant presence on the Tendring peninsula.” I have been based in Frinton now for over four years, and it is clear to me and my partners that for towns such as Clacton and Frinton, it is not just a matter of providing the services required but also to be able to provide those services in the context of being part of the community and appreciating local issues.”
With this mind, Ellisons , post merger, Ellisons joined the Clacton Chamber of Trade and Tourism. Employment Partner Jayne Scott, who is the Firm’s key representative for the Chamber commented: “We were delighted that an opportunity for us to demonstrate our commitment to the area has materialised in the form of the Clacton Christmas Lights Appeal which is being spearheaded by the Clacton Gazette, the Chamber’s Clacton Community Projects working party and fellow Chamber member Dream 100. It seems appropriate timing as we celebrate our presence in Clacton with this party, to present our donation to this very worthy cause tonight.”
Nicky Coates was happy to present a cheque for 500 to Ron Stephenson, husband of the Chamber’s President, Teresa Stephenson, who thanked the Firm for making such a significant contribution to its 10,000 target.
