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.
