Prettys Solicitors LLP is 'a pragmatic firm that is able to find creative solutions to get a deal completed', according to one source. The firm, which no longer has a Colchester office and is based solely in Ipswich, is not only a key player in the local market, but also handles a growing number of deals outside the region. Senior partner Ian Waine leads the practice and has a healthy caseload of substantial transactions including buyouts and sales of UK companies to overseas buyers. Newly promoted associate Daniel Billson has a strong base of local clients for corporate transactions, banking and commercial contracts work. Among Waine's recent highlights was his work for a well-known chain of Asian restaurants on key multimillion-pound supply contracts including logistics, IT and waste collection. He also advised on the multimillion-pound sale of another food sector client.
