The Permanent Division of Robert Half are currently recruiting for a Compliance Coordinator for an established law firm based in Colchester.
Ellisons Solicitors has been established in the East of England for over 250 years.
This strong foundation has given Ellisons a platform from which to grow and develop their specialised services, methodologies and standards; it has allowed Ellisons to anticipate and consistently meet the ever evolving challenges of a rapidly changing world and, above all, to gain the trust, respect and confidence of their clients.
Ellisons may have been around for a long time but they most certainly haven't stood still. Ellisons is now a firm of 17 partners and a further 155 employees located in five office locations. Not that size is everything but they were pleased to be acknowledged in 2016 by both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners UK.
For businesses, this is giving sound corporate and commercial advice based on instinctive business expertise, experience and knowledge. Their aim is to give their clients a competitive edge, protect their key assets and if called on, to resolve disputes.
For private individuals, Ellisons provide a high level of personal service tailored to their level of experience, expectation and objectives. Ellisons focus on the person and not just the process; they are good listeners.
So why do their clients use Ellisons? It is due to their people. Ellisons has a professionally recognised team of experienced, creative and practical lawyers whose positive attitude produces strong results which their clients have, quite rightly, come to expect.
Attitude is a little thing which makes a big difference.........
