In June, Ashurst announced it would become the first international law firm to establish a legal and business support services office in Glasgow. The firm’s significant, long-term investment will deliver hundreds of high quality, permanent jobs, in one of the UK’s most vibrant cities.
Under the leadership of Mike Polson, the office, which opened on 27 August, will provide significant opportunities to a range of professionals, including legal, IT, communications & marketing, finance, HR and risk & compliance specialists. The Glasgow office will replicate the culture and quality for which Ashurst is internationally renowned, while delivering the twin goals of excellence and innovation.
Ashurst’s commitment to Scotland will provide fresh career opportunities for talented people to join a premier global law firm. To apply visit: http://ashurst.fpsg.com/
The head of the new office in Glasgow is Mike Polson, a former senior corporate partner at Dundas & Wilson who has a longstanding relationship with Ashurst. As an experienced and highly regarded partner from a leading Scottish law firm, Mike brings the benefits of his established networks and his significant understanding of the local market to the new office.
Ashurst has bold aspirations for the office and I am thoroughly looking forward to ensuring that we deliver on our goals of excellence and innovation together. I am delighted that all of Ashurst’s business support teams will have a presence in Glasgow and will become an integral part of our new office. This is without doubt a tremendously exciting opportunity for ambitious and talented individuals who have a real focus on developing their careers and making a meaningful and valuable contribution to our new office in Glasgow. That opportunity, combined with Ashurst’s very special culture, is why I took on this role and I hope you share my enthusiasm for the journey ahead.
