About Us

Gotelee is a leading firm of solicitors in Suffolk. We offer a full range of personal and business legal services from offices in Ipswich, the county town and principal commercial centre of Suffolk, Hadleigh, Felixstowe, Melton and in Woodbridge.

Formerly Gotelee & Goldsmith, the firm was established in 1880 and has a reputation for its professional work and its personal approach with clients.  This approach is based on a longstanding commitment to the highest levels of courtesy and service, now set out in the Gotelee Client Promise.

In a recent survey of East Anglian solicitors, the Legal 500 guide to the top legal firms in the UK reported that “Clients say that services are on a par with London… and that the firm has an excellent reputation”.

A broad span of clients ranges from private individuals and families to companies and local authorities. Individual lawyers specialise, and with each of its lawyers focused on specific legal disciplines, the team at Gotelee Solicitors is able to meet the wide ranging legal needs of its clients.

The complex nature of legal problems can make it difficult to choose between lawyers. You need to be confident that your lawyer will give you sound legal advice, whatever the problem, and good service. Be assured that Gotelee has the people, resources, organisation and values to do this.
