Ashurst launched the Glasgow office in August 2013 to create a centre of excellence to drive change within the firm globally. There are two main elements to the Glasgow office – a new legal sourcing model and seven global business support functions.
New legal sourcing model
Our new legal sourcing model is focused on a core team of legal analysts – high-calibre law graduates who are involved in working on discrete parts of major client projects, transactions and cases being undertaken by our offices around the world. We work as one integrated team to deliver excellent client service in an efficient and cost effective manner.
The legal team in Glasgow have the strength and depth of experience to provide top quality support across a diverse range of work, and the scope of our services expands regularly. Our services currently include due diligence support, litigation support and project co-ordination and administration.
The legal analyst team was awarded the title of 'Next Generation Innovation' at the Legal Week Innovation Awards 2015.
