About Us 

Here at Bates Wells & Braithwaite we are recognised as one of the area's leading law firms. 
 
Bates Wells & Braithwaite was originally formed in Sudbury, Suffolk more than 100 years ago. The firm later expanded into the City of London and Ipswich, and the three offices continue to provide comprehensive legal services, albeit each is now a separate legal firm in its own right, with its own unique focus and client base. 
 
Bates Wells & Braithwaite in Ipswich celebrated its 50th birthday in 2012 and we are very proud to have offered five decades of service to clients and their families, both in the Ipswich area and beyond, covering a whole range of services. 
 
The firm continues to offer comprehensive legal services to individuals and businesses, from Personal Injury claims to Employment Law, from Dispute Resolution to Domestic and Commercial Property matters, from Wills and Probate to Family and Children Law. We have for many years been trusted by National Trade Unions with representing their members in Personal Injury and Employment Law claims. 
 
We offer straightforward advice and help our clients to resolve issues with the minimum of fuss. 
 
The firm occupies town centre offices and our staff are always willing to make home visits where appropriate. 
 
In essence...law made simple. 
We are confident that we can offer a friendly, confident and professional service covering a wide range of legal disciplines.
