We have a strong corporate strategy that means we are here for the local community. 

Our commitment to the local area goes beyond providing a legal service for individuals and businesses in and around Ipswich, Hadleigh, Felixstowe, Woodbridge and includes helping community groups and charities in Ipswich and Suffolk. Our lawyers have a range of expertise and take this community responsibility home with them because their families, friends and clients all benefit from it.

We contribute by offering our skills to community groups, charities and schools in our spare time. We also run many fundraising and sponsorship events. You will find an updated list on our Facebook page
