Great experience working with Ashan and his team. Highly recommend them for legal work. The work they did for me was a shareholders agreement and two I.P. agreements.

I have used several different Solicitors over many years for all varying aspects of Law, the only person that stands out above the others as offering both an outstanding service and excellent client satisfaction is Ashan. From my own personal experience I would highly recommend Ashan Arif, for the reasons noted above I have rated Ashan as 5 Stars which is very well deserved.

Ash has helped our tech startup from initial concept through to various fundraising stages and legal issues faced by a growing business. We have always felt fully supported by Ash who has advised us on many aspects of our business. As CEO it's great to know we have Ash to cover our legal obligations and allows me to focus on driving the business forward.

Ashan controlled his team perfectly with a nice mix of senior and junior knowledge for a number of transactions we have been through. Very quick recall on contract points and ability to deal with the numerous third parties including the buyers and sellers, partners and other legal representatives.
