Legal 500 – Gotelee Solicitors punching above its weight

Gotelee Solicitors LLP, the 140 year old full service Suffolk based law firm, has once again been recognised by the Legal 500 for the strength of its teams and the quality of client care and service that it gives to its clients. For a mid-sized legal practice with offices in Ipswich, Hadleigh, Felixstowe, Woodbridge and Framlingham, it punches above its weight.

Gotelee Solicitors’ Managing Partner, Andrew West, said “Lord Byron famously said that ‘Self praise is no praise at all.’ That is what makes the Legal 500 rankings so important – they are based on independent research, peer review and client feedback. It’s great to see the Legal 500’s findings are that we have seven lawyers who are classified as ‘Leading Individuals’ in East Anglia in their fields of expertise in Company & Commercial, Commercial Property, Employment, Crime, Health & Safety, Licensing, Private Client and Clinical Negligence/Personal Injury and one in the ‘Hall of Fame’ category for Transport. What is equally refreshing is that we have three other lawyers who have been recognised as ‘Rising Stars’ and ‘Next Generation Partners’ in Family, Contentious Probate & Trusts and Clinical Negligence/Personal Injury. These are accolades that reflect the quality and expertise that we have in-house to help with any legal problem a business or individual may have.”

Andrew West continues, “The testimonials from our clients highlight how we go about our business. When clients acknowledge our excellent technical knowledge, our ability to build lasting working relationships and praise us for our quick response times, pragmatic advice and cost-effective ability to find solutions to their problems, you know you’ve built strong teams which are operating at high levels.”

Gotelee Solicitors fully expect more accolades to follow. Senior Partner, Peter Crix, also commented “We are fortunate to have some of the highest quality lawyers in Suffolk work for us. Over the past year we have strengthened our service offering with the recruitment of Andrew Breckenridge to head Dispute Resolution. Claire Barritt has also joined as a Partner in our Commercial Property team. Despite 2020 having been a testing year so far for businesses and individuals alike, we remain very optimistic for the future.”
