Ellisons Solicitors has announced a wave of new arrivals to its Ipswich branch,

The firm has hired solicitors Samantha Cass (who joins the employment team) and Jennifer Howard-Dobson, (who joins corporate commercial). They are also joined by associate solicitor, Joanne Kelly, who although joined the Colchester Head office over a year ago, has recently relocated to the Ipswich branch in order to expand the Commercial Property department.

Alexandra Chisnall has also recently joined the team, as a commercial property paralegal.

Claire Barritt, Ellisons new planning specialist, is also based at the Ipswich office and joined the team earlier in the year. Her experience is paramount, with previous roles including Head of Corporate Services at Ipswich Borough Council. She brings with her a wealth of experience and knowledge of the Ipswich and Suffolk property market.

Guy Longhurst, senior partner, said: ‘‘The Ipswich office has been a huge success since opening in 2014, resulting in us moving to bigger premises earlier this year.

‘‘Our Suffolk client base continues to grow and as such the need for more lawyers was paramount to ensuring our clients receive the excellent client experience they have come to expect. Joanne, Samantha, Claire and Jennifer will no doubt positively impact even further upon the Ipswich office and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for our Suffolk home.’’

Ellisons services at the Ipswich office mirror that of the other offices and includes: Commercial Property, Corporate Commercial, Dispute Resolution, Employment, Insurance Litigation and Planning for business; and Dispute Resolution, Family, Personal Injury, Wills, Trusts and Probate as well Residential Property for individuals. Ellisons are pleased to offer a Financial Planning service as well as an International service.
