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 200 staff, including 23 partners. The firm has seven offices located across Essex and Suffolk: 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 fourth year running. Their practice areas and lawyers were also recognised within the Chambers UK and The Legal 500.

Ellisons Solicitors’ business client base ranges from large corporate organisations through to public sector bodies and smaller family businesses. They look after their interests by analysing risk, safeguarding assets, building businesses and resolving disputes. As part of the local business community they are involved in the region’s key developments and are able to spot opportunities and guard against any threats which may affect their clients’ interests.

Vision Office Space

Ellisons Solicitors, who have been established in the East of England for over 250 years, have almost doubled in size over the past four years. The recent opening of their office at the Vision Co-Working Space in Chelmsford was the sixth for the firm, which already had offices in Colchester, Ipswich and Tendring.

Adjacent to Chelmsford Railway Station, which provides frequent services to London, their new office provides a prime location in the heart of the city and its modern working environment replicates the overall digital transformation which the company has undergone.

We’re delighted to have opened the new Chelmsford office. We are looking forward to bringing our exceptional service standards, and philosophy of providing straightforward, clear advice to our existing clients and contacts in the Chelmsford area, as well as the wider marketplace. Located within 35 minutes of London, Chelmsford is also an excellent location for the continued expansion of our practice into London, and the further development of our International Business team.

To cap off a year of expansion, Ellisons Solicitors announced in December 2018 that they had opened a third office in their hometown of Colchester at the new ‘Bath House’ building on Le Cateau Road, adjacent to Butt Road. This office will be led by Robert Jones, Partner and Head of Insurance Litigation, who has extensive experience in catastrophic injury claims. Robert Jones will lead a team of 27 Insurance Litigation lawyers and support staff at the new office.
