Ellisons Solicitors

Ellisons Solicitors in Ipswich has a highly respected lead partner in Julian Outen, who is a qualified mediator and has many years' experience in TUPE matters resulting from outsourcing agreements and business acquisitions and mergers, and in complex litigation including boardroom disputes. The practice currently acts for a large client base in East Anglia and elsewhere in the UK, as well as handling cross-border matters for clients based in Europe, Israel and the US. A sign of the growing value and complexity of the work coming into the practice was Outen's work for an international data analytics company on a £50m corporate transaction that required the intra-group transfer of employees and the novation of employment contracts. He also acted for a large industrial company in managing the exit of a senior and long-serving director, which resulted in accusations of age discrimination and unfair dismissal. The matter was successfully settled.

Ellisons Solicitors

Fellow of APIL Robert Gair at Ellisons Solicitors has a stellar reputation for complex and high-value personal injury cases, in which he has almost 30 years' experience. He undertakes all manner of PI cases, and his many areas of specialism include claims arising from fatal accidents, acquired brain injury, industrial disease, road traffic accidents and workplace accidents. Legal executive Bernice Spurgeon handles fast and multi-track cases including road traffic accident, employers and public liability claims. One of Gair's on-going matters involves representing a client whose employer fell on him, leaving him with a fractured spine and severe shoulder injuries. He is also pursuing a high-value settlement for a client who fell and injured herself, immediately receiving an admission of liability from loss adjusters, who then withdrew that admission once proceedings were issued. The case is made more complex by international elements relating to tax liabilities and healthcare costs abroad.
