About Birkett Long LLP

Birkett Long are a law firm that is based in Essex and also has offices in Chelmsford, Basildon and Colchester. They offer clients a full range of legal advice, in business or at home.

Their services include resolving disputes, claiming for accidents or negligence, sorting out financial problems, and planning ahead with regard to making a will and financial affairs.

Their core principles include: treating people fairly, with respect and dignity, and to require the same; demonstrating honesty and integrity in the work they do and the relationships they have; and valuing, appreciating and recognising the work and effort of others.

In 2017, in keeping with their dedication to improving employee wellbeing, they produced an internal newsletter for staff promoting walking at lunchtime and, in it, suggested various walks staff could undertake during their lunch break. This provided them with information on the number of steps and approximate length of time it would take to complete each walk.
