Sanderson & Co.

2016 marked the 60th anniversary of Sanderson & Co. The firm was established in London in 1956 by Laurie Sanderson.  However, Laurie soon decided that Colchester offered a better quality of life and moved the firm to offices next to Colchester Castle.  In the 1980s the firm moved to new offices in the historic Dutch Quarter.

In March 2016 the firm moved again to the Knowledge Gateway at the University of Essex.

Senior Partner, James Sanderson, says, “With the planned opening of the University Innovation Centre this is an exciting opportunity to be at the centre of a hub of new technology companies.”
