“Astons represented Head Entertainment following the acquisition of certain assets from the Administrators of Zavvi. Astons advised us on all employment issues relating to TUPE. Robin kept us up to date and advised us at each step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending Astons”
Les Whitfield, Partner – Head Entertainment LLP

“Every time I have been asked for an employment lawyer recommendation, I have without hesitation given Astons’ contact details. Robin and Edward ‘held my hand’ during the immediate aftermath of the credit crunch when we had to make redundancies. They very carefully guided me to ensure that we did everything in accordance with employment law and prevented us from making some very expensive mistakes. Since then, they have completely re-written our employment contracts and drafted our Employee and Management Handbooks. In essence Astons have become our HR department.”
Andrew Ellinas, Director –  Sandfords

“Astons Solicitors have helped us through a company reorganisation and the support that we received was second to none. The reorganisation has enabled us to be a much more efficient company in difficult economic times. Their knowledge and expertise continues to support us on an on-going basis and they also keep us regularly updated with any changes in employment law which may apply to us. All of this has been achieved through Astons Employment Protection Scheme and is excellent value for money. I can highly recommend their service as a valuable asset to any business.”
Liz Greenwood, Finance Director and CEO – Body Works West Limited

“I first had dealings with Astons Solicitors back in the 1990’s as an Industrial Relations Manager on the Channel Tunnel. In the early stages of the project it was essential that any Employment Tribunals were handled with the utmost professionalism. It was vital that we demonstrated that all claims would be defended vigorously. We did not want to be inundated with claims from employees who thought we would settle claims or be found wanting should we end up in Tribunal. Astons were able to provide expert legal knowledge coupled with practical HR Management advice to enable us to find solutions to our problems. As a middle manager it was great to find solicitors that knew HR, not just the law and were happy to explain it and the implications. As I moved organisations I made sure I kept contact with Astons and used them on numerous occasions, all to good effect. Now as a freelance HR Management Consultant I am able to approach Astons not only about Employment Law but I am comfortable seeking guidance on more general HR issues, knowing I will get sound practical advice.”
Michael Hinchcliffe, HR Management Consultant
