Ashtons Legal has a ‘flexible and commercial‘ employment practice that is best-known for its work in specific industry sectors including education, in which it acts for numerous Cambridge Colleges, manufacturing, food and beverage, and oil and gas. The firm also has a growing client base in the healthcare sector, and the addition of a regulatory team focused on road transport and logistics is generating employment law matters from that sector. Ross Strowger leads the practice from Norwich and last year he handled employment issues for Dingles Motor Group arising from the sale of its business. In Cambridge, Claire Sleep is the key contact. With solicitor Carrie March, she assisted St John's College School with a range of employment matters. Associate Colin Makin in Ipswich is ‘always available and his knowledge of TUPE is exceptional; not only has he got outstanding employment law knowledge, but he also understands the commercial side of decisions made and is great fun to work with'.
