As a global Firm, Ashurst has been made aware of instances where our name has been used in fraudulent scam emails.

As soon as we become aware of such an occurrence, we will endeavour to raise awareness of this illegal activity on our Fraud Alerts page.

If you receive a communication which purports to be from Ashurst and are unsure as to its authenticity, please contact compliance.team@ashurst.com or your usual contact at Ashurst.

Regrettably we cannot directly prevent these emails or other communications from occurring in instances where they do not originate from or pass through Ashurst systems. We will however undertake all reasonable steps to identify those responsible and will report such scams to our regulatory authorities.
