The Triumph Over Adversity Award
With offices in Chelmsford, Basildon and Colchester, Birkett Long is focused on people – its clients, employees, business partners and local communities. Tracing its roots back to 1821, the firm’s specialist lawyers, patent attorneys, independent financial advisers and HR experts work in dedicated teams to offer the full range of advice.
“Supporting rural businesses is fundamental to protect our communities both on an economic and environmental level. They often start as small, family run vocations without government support, relying on community support and interest. Birkett Long has a long term commitment to agriculture and is pleased to have acted for several generations of the same family, as well as for new clients looking for specialist advice.”
