Our commercial lawyers mean business

At Ashton KCJ we understand business. Our commercial law solicitors are known as efficient, pragmatic and approachable business lawyers with a flair for giving you solutions how, when and where you want them. It is that client-focused and straightforward approach which attracts businesses to the firm – and brings them back time and again.

We don’t work in silos. Our commercial lawyers work side by side, taking an interest in your business. That means that as well as addressing your immediate needs, they can anticipate what lies ahead – sometimes pitfalls, sometimes opportunities – and give you strategic advice on how to tackle them. They take a watching brief looking out for you.

What makes them so good? A combination of things. Lots of hard work and experience in your sector. A relentless eye for detail. A collaborative approach between clients and colleagues, and, quite simply, a passion to watch you succeed.

We have clients in a wide variety of industries but our experience is particularly strong in these sectors:

  • Agriculture & estates
  • Real estate
  • Franchising
  • Education
  • Public and private companies
  • Local authorities.

We are also experiencing a significant increase in instructions from these industries:

  • Energy
  • Healthcare / medical services
  • Environmental / infrastructure services.

At Ashton KCJ, we understand that commercial law often needs a broad approach. Our commercial lawyers can draw on the knowledge of a vast array of specialists in our other teams, tapping into their expertise in fields such as trusts and tax planning, ensuring nothing is overlooked.
