20 Nov Award-winning solicitors expands its Chelmsford office
Ellisons Solicitors has expanded its presence in Chelmsford with a move to a new office in the heart of the city’s business district.
The award-winning law firm’s new base is a 2,100sq ft premises on New London Road and follows the firm’s celebration of a triumphant first 18 months in the city. Since opening, the Chelmsford team has grown rapidly exceeding all expectations. In its first 12 months, the Chelmsford office’s annual review reported a significant increase in transactions.
More recently, three of Ellisons’ Chelmsford team were named as ‘Next Generation Lawyers’ in October’s Legal 500 rankings. They included Paul Forsyth (Partner, Corporate and Commercial), Scott Porter (Partner, Commercial Litigation, Insolvency and Corporate Recovery) and Lisa Dawson (Partner, Family).
The new office boasts capacity for 26 employees and will allow Ellisons to continue with its ambitious expansion plans.
Guy Longhurst, Managing Partner, said: “We’re thrilled to be extending our footprint in Chelmsford with a move to New London Road. It’s a well-established area of the city for professional businesses and is very convenient for visiting clients, in a central location and with on-site parking.
“It has been an incredibly exciting first 18 months for the team. The Chelmsford office has provided Ellisons with a location for the continued expansion of our practice, and the further development of our International Business team. Our success is a reflection of our consistent focus on client care and in providing straightforward, clear advice. The Chelmsford team are delighted with their new office and look forward to working with existing and new clients and contacts.”
Chelmsford was the sixth office opened by this historic firm, which traces its roots back to 1764. The expansion into Chelmsford was a natural progression for the firm, which has offices in Colchester, Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Tendring, and overall it has almost doubled in size over the past four years.
