About us

Ashfords is a national provider of legal and professional services. 

We are as ambitious as our clients and thrive on being a part of their success. Our clear direction and strong leadership ensures they always receive the service they deserve and expect.

Our sector specialists deliver insightful and commercial solutions tailored to our clients industries. We have a clear understanding of our markets with significant experience and depth of knowledge in business areas including real estate, energy, projects, corporate, commercial, technology and private client. Our clients tell us that we genuinely understand their challenges and their sectors – and our focus is on finding solutions and getting the results our clients want. 

We have a far reaching international presence with extensive experience of working with overseas clients. As a leading member of the ADVOC network of independent law firms, Ashfords can co-ordinate the delivery of legal advice from over 100 jurisdictions worldwide.

Our priorities go beyond business and we are committed to the communities in which we operate. Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme is staff-led, and as part of this we raised over £75,000 for Parkinson's UK in 2016. 

We were recently awarded our Alternative Business Structure (ABS) licence which will allow the firm the ability to diversify the range of legal services provided and build on the number of complimentary business service offerings we offer, including our patent and trade mark agency, a dedicated health and safety consultancy and platform (BRS) and our recently launched joint venture developed bespoke contract management and data room service.
