As one of the region’s leading law firms, we have focused on recruiting and nurturing some of the best local talent, and today we are celebrating a significant milestone as our headcount surpassed 100 employees.
The firm was founded in 1880 and we have enjoyed a period of strong growth in recent years, with the firm investing heavily in its next generation of lawyers and support teams. The firm offers a full range of personal and business legal services, operating from its offices in Ipswich, Felixstowe and Hadleigh.
Gotelee prides itself on being deep rooted in the community and a key element of that approach is to be a sustainable business investing for the future and the local community. In addition to our various client services and charitable support, the nurturing of local talent is a key ingredient in that mix. We are enthusiastic recruiters and want to grow our own lawyers of the future from our own backyard. What could be a better indicator of a sustainable business than providing career opportunities for the next generation?
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’.
Our recent appointments further boost our expert team of lawyers and support staff, and reaffirms our commitment to Ipswich and surrounding areas in Suffolk.
With our office that opened in Felixstowe 18 months ago, it has cemented our reputation for professional work with a personal approach. Since the dark days of the recession, many businesses have been ultra-cautious about investing but we have taken a slightly different tack and over the last three years has invested heavily in our next generation of lawyers and support teams.
It’s fantastic to mark January 2016 as the latest milestone in our ambition to have the strength in depth to continue providing a high-quality legal service to our clients in Suffolk.
