Leading law firm, Ellisons Solicitors, is proudly announcing a period of further growth at its Ipswich office. Both Ellisons’ employment and property teams have expanded with the appointments of their first Residential Solicitor for the Ipswich office, two solicitors and one solicitor advocate.
This news comes after the Ipswich office was recognised in three prestigious categories in the 2018 ACQ5 Global Awards. Ellisons was named the UK’s Personal Injury Advisory Firm of the Year, the UK’s Regional Employment Advisory Firm of the Year and the UK’s Regional Corporate and Commercial Advisory Firm of the Year.
Matthew Preston-Bloom has joined the property team as Ellisons’ first Ipswich Residential Solicitor. A highly-trained and experienced professional, Matthew specialises in residential property including freehold, leasehold, registered, and unregistered property.
Matthew said: “I am very excited to be joining Ellisons. It is a firm with an established good reputation, has superior infrastructure and support, and an atmosphere that’s far more positive than anything I’ve ever encountered before. I’m looking forward to working with such an exciting firm, and to providing a high level of client service.”
In the Commercial Property team, Anna Mulholland has joined as a newly-qualified solicitor, assisting with all types of commercial property matters. Completing her LPC (Legal Practice Course) and MSc in Business, Law and Management at the University of Law, Moorgate, Anna brings Ellisons’ established Commercial Property team in Ipswich to four members.
Anna said: “I am delighted to be starting my career as a solicitor at Ellisons. I’m very excited to be joining a hugely-experienced and highly-regarded team of solicitors, and look forward to providing clients with strong results.”
In the award-winning Employment team, Ellisons has welcomed Tina Maxey and Zoe Parker to the Ipswich office. Tina is a very experienced employment solicitor, advising principally employers on all areas of employment law. Zoe joins the team as a solicitor advocate with Civil Higher Rights of Audience, and acts principally for employees, including representation in the Employment Tribunal.
Julian Outen, Partner and Head of Employment said: “2019 will be a milestone year for the Ipswich office, and I’m delighted to welcome Matthew, Anna, Tina and Zoe to the team. It is a great way to start the year and it is a sign of good things to come for Ellisons as we continue to expand in Ipswich and beyond.”
