Global law firm Ashurst and McLaren Group, the elite motorsports and luxury supercar maker, today announce a multi-year extension to their existing partnership which sees Ashurst continue as Official Legal Services partner.
Deepening and building on the successful relationship, Ashurst will continue to work alongside McLaren’s in-house legal counsel on all aspects of its legal requirements, providing support across the Group.
It is a decade since Ashurst first teamed up with McLaren Automotive in 2013, before the leading global law firm was announced as McLaren Group’s Official Legal Services partner in 2019. Throughout the course of the partnership Ashurst has advised McLaren on a number of key projects, including the Group's involvement in the Ventilator Challenge UK and McLaren Racing's acquisition of Mercedes-Benz Formula E Team, marking McLaren's entrance into Formula E.
“Ashurst’s deep understanding of the legal landscape, combined with their global presence which mirrors our own, have been invaluable assets to McLaren. We are excited to further strengthen our strategic partnership as part of this multi-year partnership extension.”
Tim Murnane, Group Legal Director and Company Secretary, McLaren Group

Our shared vision and focus on outpacing change and creating a more sustainable future is perfectly aligned, and we look forward to continuing to work together to deliver on this."
