After two and half successful years at Gotelee, Charles Rowett, Chief Executive, has decided to move to a new challenge and will be leaving the firm at the end of October. “Having  a Chief Executive Officer in place in recent years has focused the partnership on improving performance and our business strategy.  We owe a great deal to Charles who has led us through a period of growth, and been responsible for a number of key appointments across our offices in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Hadleigh and Woodbridge.”  commented Peter Crix, Senior Partner. “Charles leaves us with some key foundation blocks for our future firmly in place and we are extremely grateful to him and wish him all the best in his new role.”

I fully understand the values of this firm and am delighted to play such an important part in its future.  There is an excellent management team in place with a huge amount of experience in running and developing growth in a legal firm. I believe we will continue to go from strength to strength.”
