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.

  • We are small, boutique firm, but with the skills and clout of a top-tier practice
  • All our lawyers are from highly regarded law firms
  • Because we are smaller, we have a much quicker turn around
  • We can communicate more regularly and efficiently
  • Our pricing is competitive, transparent and fair
  • We are always upfront about costs, no hidden charges and always discuss any changes to initial cost estimates
  • Our services are business focussed
Experience and quality

As a boutique specialist law firm, we focus on the things that we are good at. We’ve done these types of transactions many times over, so we are well placed to give you relevant and commercial advice.

Value for money

As a smaller firm, you can be assured that your matter won’t be “funneled” down to a junior then back up to a partner before it gets back to you – which adds extra cost to you! We provide experience equivalent to a top tier law firm (in fact, our lawyers come from top tier law firm backgrounds), but 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.

Extremely quick turnaround times

We are renowned for the quick turnaround times that we are able to provide – no matter how big or small your transaction. We know how important your business is to you – so we generally aim to review and advise on documents within no more than 48 hours of receipt. If you need it within a shorter time frame, just challenge us!

Commercial focus

We know that you’ve come to us to get the deal across the line, so our services are highly focused on resolutions that are price effective and which are practical. We understand the potential risks, and we work to proactively manage those areas to ensure the highest likelihood of a great outcome for you.


We know that there’s nothing worse than engaging a professional who then disappears into the ether until deal time. 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. With our extensive project management experience, we’ll provide you with helpful project checklists and timelines, and regular updates throughout the transaction.

Team players

Wherever possible we work closely with your accountants and other advisers, so that the sale process runs as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

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 for you.

Aspect Legal is a boutique legal practice, meaning that when you engage our services our senior experienced team will look after you from start to finish.

We are passionate about business, and about providing high quality proactive legal support. With over 25 years combined experience we have entrepreneurial experience and have held directorships in a range of business industries including finance, accounting, IT, and web-based businesses. Our first-hand experience of the “inside” of businesses gives us a unique and commercial perspective of the challenges and opportunities of business owners.
