A firm of solicitors is expanding its business by opening an office in Friars Street in Sudbury.

Wayman & Long, which specialises in family and property law, estate planning, and divorce and mediation, has made a £20,000 investment by acquiring and refurbishing a new office in Sudbury whilst, at the same time refurbishing its well-established office in Clare.

Stephen Whiskin, a partner of the business, said: “We see Sudbury as a town with a lot of potential. It has a thriving and passionate business community, something that we at Wayman & Long feel is very important”

The firm has established links with the town, agreeing to mentor budding law students at Thomas Gainsborough School in Great Cornard and by setting up a law suite there.

Thomas Gainsborough sixth form student Lewis Wingate has already started a work placement and the firm hopes to offer more practical work placements in future, with a view to permanent positions in the company. The firm confirmed it will expand staff numbers in future.

Mr Whiskin added: “It’s been an exciting year of growth and development for Wayman & Long, with marked investments in training, IT, staffing and facilities.”

In Clare, the firm supports the town’s Christmas lights and gives advice at three Citizens Advice Bureaux.
