A legal innovation advocate who spends her time collaborating with progressive corporate counsel to deliver better legal services


Collaboration in legal industry supply chainsLyndsey has devoted recent years to developing our corporate counsel consultancy service, canvassing the views of several hundred GCs and corporate legal executives to understand:

  • the evolving role of General Counsel
  • how legal teams interface with the business 
  • what they need from their suppliers. 

Lyndsey avidly monitors the changing legal landscape and has spent considerable time with clients, alternative providers, new law firms and legal commentators to anticipate the direction and trends in the sector. 


As a keen supporter of legal transformation, Lyndsey drives asb law’s broader mission to challenge the status quo and revolutionise the delivery of legal services. She applies the data and insights gained from her many conversations with clients and other legal innovators to create and implement a range of solutions designed to meet the needs of in-house legal teams and offers consultancy advice to support GCs in re-engineering and streamlining their processes to reduce cost and mitigate risk.


An experienced litigator with broad experience of managing commercial disputes through national and international courts, as well as through arbitration, adjudication and mediation, Lyndsey is well-placed to have devised asb law’s legal project management solution, asb Navigate, which enables greater transparency and control in managing disputes.

What our clients say...

"We have nothing but good things to say about asb law and in particular Lyndsey Ratcliffe and the Dispute Resolution team. Having found ourselves at the end of some particularly nasty litigation it was a breath of fresh air to have Lyndsey’s sound common sense, innovative ideas and ,most especially, unstinting support behind us.

Throughout the whole dispute she worked tirelessly on our behalf, keeping us up to date on all that was happening and constantly reassuring us that the approach we were taking was the right one. She was simply a delight to work with and very deserving of her recent promotion to partner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lyndsey and her team to any individual or organisation."
