ValuesThe Aspect Legal difference

On first contact, you’ll notice that we’re a little bit different to your usual law firm. Here’s why, and here’s what our clients’ say about us.

Experience and quality

We are a boutique specialist firm, focusing only on the areas that we excel.

Value for money

We provide the skills and clout of a top tier law practice without the top tier price.

Highly responsive services

We’re available whenever you need us – you can contact us by email, fax, phone, Skype or old-fashioned face-to-face meetings.

Fast turn around times

We are renowned for the quick turn around times that we are able to provide – no matter how big or small your transaction. We know how important fast timing can be on keeping things moving – so we generally aim to review and advise on documents within no more than 48 hours or receipt. We are, however, highly competitive and we’re always challenging ourselves to beat that time frame!

Commercial focus

Our services are highly focused on resolutions that are commercially sound. We understand the variety of potential risks in commercial transactions, and constantly balance dealing with those risks against an understanding of the commercial imperatives.


We know that there’s nothing worse than engaging a professional who then disappears into the ether. We like to keep you informed of what’s been done, what we are currently doing, what you need to be doing, and when we all need to do things by.

Team players

Wherever required we proactively work closely with your management team, relevant stakeholders and other professional advisers, so the full team is singing from the same hymnbook.

We truly care

As business owners ourselves, we deeply care about the results for you. We will do everything possible to get the best possible outcome.
