Essex law firm elevates presence in Basildon

Essex-based law firm Birkett Long has elevated its presence in Basildon, Essex, by moving to a new office on the sixth floor of Phoenix House.

Having opened in Basildon in 2011, this move aligns with Birkett Long’s growth strategy. It aims to strengthen its regional footprint, particularly in South Essex, furthering its objectives to sustain its position as the leading Essex-based law firm providing excellent service for all, by all, all of the time.

David Cant, Partner and Director of Business Development and Marketing at Birkett Long, said: “This move also creates a significant career opportunity for an experienced professional to join Birkett Long, take on the leadership of the office, and further develop our presence across South Essex and beyond. Initially, a significant part of the role will focus on team building and client and business partner relationship management.”

Basildon, with a population of 180,700 and an economy worth £3.7bn, is the largest and fastest-growing economy in Essex and a significant driver of regional and national growth. The new office is part of Birkett Long’s commitment to transformative developments in Basildon and surrounding regions.

The office, strategically positioned just off the A127, is a 10-minute drive from Basildon railway station. This ensures easy access for clients and business partners, making it convenient for them to reach the office from Basildon, Southend, and the A127/A13/M25 corridors. The office is also positioned for a 35-minute commute to London (Fenchurch Street Station), further enhancing its accessibility.

The new office features a fantastic panoramic view, providing a spacious and inspiring environment for staff and visitors.

Martin Hopkins, Managing Partner at Birkett Long, confirmed, “This move reflects Birkett Long’s commitment to aligning its services with the evolving needs of clients in the region.”

At Phoenix Business Park, sustainability takes centre stage. The latest Environmental, Social, and Governance Standards are closely monitored, focusing on energy efficiency and emission profiles.

The new office provides a comprehensive and sustainable workspace solution for Birkett Long and its staff, clients, and business partners. It also offers free parking, the excellent on-site Phoenix Bistro restaurant, and high-quality meeting rooms.
