"Joining Ashurst Reach has been one of the smartest decisions I have made for my career. I now have the ability to rapidly extend my practice across new sectors; network with an inspiring circle of professionals including the Ashurst community; grow in confidence sharing my skill set with both emerging and established clients; and importantly, balance my working week having regard to the needs of my young family."
Jessica Morris, Reach Legal Consultant
"Being a consultant with Reach has been a hugely positive experience allowing me to take my career in a different direction. Reach match my skills and experience to client needs. The thing that stands out the most for me is the sense of value-add I have brought to roles and the appreciation clients have expressed for the work delivered - which I know from experience is not something you always get in a permanent role"
