Long-established local law firm Gotelee Solicitors is being acquired by a fast-growing international law firm, Mezzle. Founded in 1880, Gotelee offers a full range of legal services to private and business clients and has offices in Ipswich, Hadleigh, Felixstowe, Framlingham and Woodbridge with around 90 employees. The firm will join Mezzle from 1st March. Mezzle, also a full-service law firm, was established in 2019 to meet the changing needs of both its clients and its lawyers. CEO and co-founder of Mezzle, Mel Kang and fellow business partner and COO, Raj Sumal, both previously lawyers at top law firms, saw an opportunity to create a progressive law firm that adopted modern working methods and practices for the benefit of lawyers and clients. Mezzle’s model caters both for lawyers who enjoy working within a traditional structure of a law firm and others who want greater flexibility and to work on a self-employed fee share basis. Mel Kang said: “We are very excited to have Gotelee Solicitors on board as part of the Mezzle group. Bringing our cutting-edge technology and tech-based solutions into Gotelee’s operations and investing in its staff and bringing in even more talent will see the firm grow and flourish.”

Andrew West, managing partner of Gotelee Solicitors, said: “The legal sector is a highly competitive market. With the investment and resources brought in by Mezzle, we are looking forward to growing and consolidating our position.  By adopting Mezzle’s state of the art IT systems and back-office support, this will allow our lawyers to single-mindedly focus on meeting our clients’ needs.” The firm will continue to trade as Gotelee Solicitors.
