"Debbie is my “go to” solicitor for the complexities of Intellectual Property and Data Protection issues. She has recently delivered concise, speedy and practical advice in facilitating the sale of a sensitive database, ensuring all requirements of the Financial Services Authority (FSA) and Data Protection legislation were comfortably dealt with. All issues were covered with no fuss and, importantly, minimal impact on my time. Debbie assimilates information quickly and tackles each job with her client’s needs firmly in mind. I have no hesitation in recommending her to anybody in need of a technically sound yet practical professional"
Brian Baker, Kingston Smith LLP

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."
HR Business Partner - Flight Operations, TUI Travel plc
"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
"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
"As insolvency practitioners we often require legal advice in order to assist us in carrying out our duties as office holders. When we use asb law we know that the team are experienced with all aspects of insolvency and always provide a first rate service and robust advice. The experience of the team is particularly evident when dealing with problematic issues and they are renowned in the industry for troubleshooting."
Garry Lock, Senior Manager/Recovery, RSM Tenon
"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
"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
"asb law has acquired a significant number of properties for us. We use them now as our first port of call for not just property but employment matters. We regard asb law as our front-line lawyers…it helps that they understand how property fits into our work. The property partner we deal with is also very well versed in charity law, which means we can move forward with a sense of confidence because he will already have explored all the potential difficulties."
CEO of a national charity
"We were very pleased with the service received from asb’s employment team.
We appreciated the fact that they were able to meet up with us as often as we required and found the advice given timely.
Dealing with the team made the whole TUPE process less daunting for all of us."
