We focus on understanding you and your business

Our approach enables us to deliver practical, commercial solutions in relation to transactions and commercial, governance and regulatory matters. With over 100 global corporate partners, we are well-resourced in major commercial centres to advise on M&A, private equity, joint ventures, equity capital markets, reorganisations, governance and regulatory issues. This means that our lawyers have the range of experience to advise your business on its reputational and legal risks throughout its lifecycle.

A fully integrated global team with specialist expertise

Our corporate practice is fully integrated with our tax, competition, real estate, finance, disputes, IP, IT, employment and pensions practices. This multi-disciplinary team provides you with the broad service that you require, whether in relation to transactions or day to day corporate requirements.

Understanding your industry

Our multi-disciplinary team of lawyers pride themselves on understanding your business, and have a deep knowledge of the industry sectors in which you operate. As a result of this, we ensure that our advice is directly relevant to the needs of your business.

Multi-jurisdictional advice

As a global corporate practice, our advice spans borders. Clients increasingly need access to the best-in-market advice across multiple jurisdictions in relation to transactions and other governance and regulatory issues. Our global presence ensures that we are able to mobilise teams across our offices to provide a seamless service in relation to cross-border matters.

Hands on and experienced lawyers

Our lawyers do not just tell our clients what the law is. They understand the pressures faced by your business in an increasingly regulated environment, and use their experience to provide high quality, commercially relevant advice. Our approach is to be open, supportive and transparent, but robust where necessary.

The Ashurst team manage to differentiate themselves in this marketplace through their consistently non-stuffy, easy to deal with approach to executing intense and demanding mandates. CHAMBERS, 2017
