A client, Chambers & Partners 2018

"Clients of asb law LLP rate the team for ‘consistently providing the best advice’"

Legal 500 2017

"If you were to ask any HR professional what they require from their lawyers then the following would certainly make the list: commercial, pragmatic, having a clear understanding of their client's working context and providing solid legal advice in that context, and a sense of humour. Since I started to work with asb two and a half years ago these are the characteristics that I have seen demonstrated across the employment team. The operational advice and guidance that we have received has been incredibly helpful and timely and has significantly contributed to my team delivering a high quality and consistent service to their stake holders in the handling of ER issues.

As Head of HR and from a strategic perspective, asb have made great partners."

Head of HR, Promat UK Ltd

"We have worked with asb law for a number of years, mainly around the area of employment law, and have always received excellent service from their experienced team.

Requests for advice and information are turned around very quickly, even at very short notice, or when help is required out of normal office hours.

The team is highly professional, patient, courteous and reassuring, always prepared to talk through concerns and showing great empathy with difficult situations.

I would not hesitate in recommending asb law to other businesses."

Head of Membership and Development, ABTA Ltd

"I have been dealing with the employment team at asb law for over 10 years, during which time they have provided me with excellent support in all areas of employment law. The advice and guidance given has ensured we have remained compliant at all times with current legislation. Sarah Brockhurst has been my main contact for advice over the last two years. Sarah is very knowledgeable in her field and I have the utmost confidence in the advice and guidance she gives.

The Employment Breakfast Forums are very informative and let you know in advance about proposed changes. They give you the opportunity to meet the team face to face, ask questions and act as a network with other HR functions, worthwhile attending. I can highly recommend asb law as experts in their field."

HR Manager, Keysource Ltd

"In the five years of my relationship as a client, asb has acted in various capacities, providing advice on changing contracts, pensions consultation, property and leasehold matters as well as taxation.

Having engaged asb in a breadth of employment and business matters I feel I can say confidently that they are a capable, professional and most importantly effective team across a whole range of business and legal matters.

I consider asb as the first point of contact for any business and legal advice, and certainly would recommend them to other businesses."

HR Director, The Ambassador Theatre Group Ltd

"Having worked with asb law for a number of years we have always found them to be reliable, commercially astute and value for money. The employment team is a highly professional and knowledgeable one that provides a high level of customer service. Over the years we have tested the employment team with a variety of challenging situations and always been given legally sound advice that provides for workable commercial solutions. It is reassuring to work with a team that demonstrates such understanding of and engagement in our business."

Legal 500 2014 - Employment

"Throughout this year our company has been using asb law to assist with a variety of our legal requirements from employment law to the acquisition of a new business through an asset purchase. We have found asb law to be conscientious and affordable, a firm with the client’s interests firmly to the fore. We have every intention of using the services of asb law in the future as required. We consider our relationship to be that of a partnership rather than ‘just’ a client."

Mrs J Murray, SLI Ltd

"As the owner controller of a mid-size Financial Services Group we are consistently being tested by complex employment legislation, mergers and acquisitions (having acquired 17 companies in 10 years) and litigation. We have utilised the services of hundreds of practices over our 10 years with varying degrees of success. asb law provide a refreshing business led approach and have guided us through spurious actions culminating in a successful outcome. They have told us the bad news we don't want to hear and how to mitigate an impossible situation. Couple the aforementioned with the pragmatic, robust litigation they undertake and you have a winning recipe from a multi faceted practice. It's refreshing when your legal partners have your interest at the forefront of their strategy."
