Ashteds Solicitors – Over 30 years of professional experience

We believe clients who need specialist Dispute Resolution, Restructuring or Insolvency advice want to deal with a firm that has a proactive, rigorous and commercial approach.

Our lawyers have over 30 years of experience in handling complex and difficult cases, both in this country and abroad.

Ashteds prides itself on its very specialised service to its clients.   Our lawyers concentrate on their specialisms.  Our intention is to be your law firm of choice when it comes to handling your Dispute Resolution or Insolvency and Corporate Recovery matters.

We have stripped out the overheads and created a low cost base by removing the rigid structures associated with larger multi service firms.  Our lawyers are not tied down by chargeable hours and hourly rates.  We can therefore be proactive when it comes to charging fees.  What we will not do however is compromise on the quality of our lawyers and support staff.  Our lawyers have previously worked in major commercial firms and are used to handling large, complex and often ground breaking cases.  As a result they bring a wealth of experience to your matter which cannot be replicated in situations where a junior lawyer is assigned to your case.


The clock does not start to run from the moment you instruct us.  We want to understand your case and your objectives before we enter into any formal fee arrangements. We think innovatively and work with you to formulate a strategy best suited to the needs of you and your business.

We are more than happy to sit down and discuss all forms of funding with you.  Our lawyers are prepared to put their judgement to the test and will enter into Conditional Fee Agreements or Damages Based Agreements where appropriate.  We have access to some of the best After the Event Insurers who can provide you with peace of mind with insurance policies to protect you from any adverse costs orders.  We  will also consider capped fees for different stages of your case.

Whatever the matter we keep you fully informed of the costs of dealing with your dispute so that you can appropriately plan and manage.

Ashteds has also invested in the latest client friendly technology which allows us to work in the most efficient, responsive and cost effective way.  We have long standing relationships with major litigation support consultancies, Forensic Accountants and Insolvency Practitioners throughout the country which ensures that your case has the best team working on it.
