Who we are

Our story

As one of the world's leading global law firms, our story is one of change and progress.

Today, the pace of change feels faster and more relentless than ever before.

The question is no longer: how do we keep pace? It’s: how do we get ahead, and stay ahead, of change?

Since 1822, our ambition has always been to lead the field, to be ahead of our time, and to inspire change. Through our 200-year history, taking a progressive stance on the issues of our time has been a constant thread, every step of the way. And this thread continues to run through our global firm.

At Ashurst, we’re here to do more than keep pace; we’re here to champion new ideas and to innovate. To deeply understand our clients’ needs and to help them realise their ambitions too. To see what others can’t – to go beyond the ordinary – and find solutions that create a better future for our clients and our communities.

At Ashurst, we call this Outpacing Change.

We’re relentlessly anticipating the market’s ever-changing needs and creating integrated solutions that provide the most strategic value for our clients.

What sets us apart in the market is our people and how we work together; with our clients and one another, we share a strong desire to succeed.

Our passion for quality, our ability to think differently, and deliver through collaboration are the values we live by.

They underpin the solutions we deliver, the experiences we create, and the broader impact we have in the world.
