Marketing Team

  • Posted

The marketing team makes sure anyone looking for legal and independent financial advice finds the specialists they need. We help our lawyers identify and make the most of opportunities to grow their business. The team also manages the firm’s profile, ensuring a consistent experience for anyone who encounters Birkett Long in any form, particularly within the Colchester, Chelmsford and Basildon areas, but also across Essex as a whole.
