Solicitors in Ipswich (Suffolk)
Birketts has had an office in Ipswich since its formation by Benjamin Birkett in 1863 and our Ipswich address in Museum Street is also our registered office.
Of a total staff of 430, just under half of them are based in the Ipswich office. Our excellent team of solicitors and lawyers specialise in the full range of services across corporate and commercial law, dispute resolution, property law, agricultural law, employment law, Wills and estate planning and family law. It is also the base for our specialist criminal corporate defence, construction, charities and debt recovery teams. Its proximity to the ports of Felixstowe and Harwich also make it the ideal location for our rapidly growing shipping and logistics solicitors team.

The role we play in the community is very important to us.

The firm’s operational management team is based in Ipswich under the direction and leadership of our CEO Alistair Lang.
Nigel Farthing, our Senior Partner, is also based in Ipswich.
