Ellisons Solicitors in Essex

Ellisons Solicitors is one of the oldest, most-established, and fastest growing firms in the East of England, with a professionally recognised team of experienced, creative and practical lawyers whose positive attitude produces strong results.

Ellisons Solicitors is a firm of over 250 staff, including 25 partners. The firm has seven offices located across Essex and Suffolk: Bury St Edmunds, Colchester, Chelmsford, Ipswich, and Tendring. The Ellisons Way, the firm’s cultural framework, ensures high standards across all areas of the business. This was recognised recently when they secured the national Law Society’s law management quality mark, Lexcel, for the fifth year running. Their practice areas and lawyers were also recognised within the Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

Ellisons Solicitors, who have been established in the East of England for over 250 years, have doubled in size over the past five years. In late 2019 they expanded their presence in Chelmsford with a move to a new office in the heart of the city’s business district.

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

Thriving and expanding

Their new Chelmsford base is a 2,100sq ft premises on New London Road and follows the celebration of a triumphant first 18 months in the city. They will be neighboured by Blesma, the limbless veterans charity, who relocated to Chelmsford from Chadwell Heath. 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, Insolvency and Debt Recovery) and Lisa Dawson (Partner, Family).
