Essex: Barclays has hosted a dinner at its global headquarters in London for 15 partners of Essex law firm Ellisons.

The firm, which has offices in Colchester, Clacton, Frinton, Dovercourt and Ipswich, is this year celebrating its 250th anniversary and has banked with Barclays throughout that time.

The dinner was hosted by Barclays relationship director Steve Webb.
