They are focused on providing the best client advice.” The 2023 Guide added “Angus Ashman was the consummate professional who was able to guide and advise us through our litigation. He was clear, concise and delivered news, whether good or bad, in an understandable way.” The 2023 Guide added “In the commercial litigation department, I have always used Angus Ashman. You know immediately that Angus Ashman is very much on your side and will fight to the end if so instructed. One of his great traits, and sadly unusual in today’s world, is his preference to pick up the telephone and discuss the case rather than simply email.”
