Attwells Solicitors are set to open a new office in March 2019 in the former North Hill Surgery premises.
The site in the town centre being left by the surgery will now see new and fresh investment by Attwells, in a real boost to the local economy. The new office will also offer employment opportunities to Colchester residents and a return home for many of Attwells’ staff members.
Local lad Lloyd Clarke, Partner at Attwells Solicitors will be overseeing the move. Lloyd, former Philip Morant School pupil and Essex University student joined Attwells Solicitors in 2009 to undertake his training contract. Since qualification, he has moved up the firm and now heads up the Employment and Health & Social Care team at Attwells.
“As a firm we are excited about our move into Colchester town centre, where we will feel we can better serve existing clients in Essex, whilst also building relationships with new clients and the local community. Personal service is at the heart of everything we do and we feel we have something modern and different to offer to a town with plenty of sustained growth and entrepreneurial spirit. We also provide great career opportunities to Colchester residents, with my own career trajectory testament to Attwells’ commitment to career progression”
Lloyd is part of the Attwells team recognised last month as the best property law firm in Suffolk, and the second best property law firm in East Anglia at the ESTA awards (voted for by clients) held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London and hosted by Phil Spencer.
As part of the Colchester office acquisition, many staff members who already live in the town will be moving back home to the new Colchester office. These lawyers have all benefited from Attwells strong focus on career progression, mirroring Lloyd Clarke’s journey.
Attwells are committed to employing local people and have planned several community events to celebrate the opening of their new office including: supporting Colchester United; Colchester Half Marathon; Headway Essex and the Essex Care Association.
Founding Partner Nick Attwell explains:
“A Solicitors Firm is an integral part of the local community. At Attwells we provide access to legal advice and support community activities. With the opening of our new office in Colchester we are stepping up this commitment to our Essex clients with an investment in Colchester’s historic centre and a return home for the team who live in the town”
