Ashtons Legal creates 21 senior associate roles


Monday 12 November 2018



Ashtons Legal is proud to announce that 21 associates from across the firm have been promoted to new senior associate roles.

The new senior associates will work alongside the firm's 34 partners and 13 associates.

This new team has been created in recognition of the diverse range of associates in our business - some of whom are considered to be operating nearer to partner standards. Others have only just been made associate. The new senior associates are divided across all of the firm's disciplines and are based in all of the firm's five offices.

From our Trusts and Tax team, the new senior associate is Gillian Brasher. In Disputes it is Nigel Maguire and from the Court of Protection team the new senior associates are Anna Foster, Debbie Holmes and Paul Humphries. Personal Injury now have four, those being Nick Peake, Tom Ranson, Ben Ward and Siobhan McWhinney. From Commercial Property the new senior associates are Rhian Brook, Simon Burnip, Jo Sandwell and Charlotte Vallins. Lifetime Planning welcome Christina Duck, Louise Cardwell and Janette Wand to their new roles, as do Construction who are proud to congratulate Sarah Duncan. In Family it is Francesca Easter and from Residential Property, Fiona Ouzman. Corporate and Commercial also welcome two senior associates being Mark Watson and John Yatchsin.

Ashtons' CEO Ed O'Rourke says: "Following a review of our internal leadership programme and in particular our Leading Effective Teams course, we recognised that there were a number of existing associates already operating at a high level so we therefore took a decision to promote them to the new senior associate role with immediate effect."

Ed adds: "I would like to congratulate all our new senior associates on this achievement, which is richly deserved."
