THE FIRM asb law is an innovative, client-centric, UK law and consultancy firm recognised for its resolve to challenge convention and find better ways of delivering legal services. Over the last few years, asb law has transformed its operations from a traditional, service-based model to one that is truly client-centric. The firm designs and delivers its services around the current and future needs of target clients — that is, forward-thinking legal departments looking for better ways to support the business.
Through a significant investment in collaborative relationships, project management techniques and lean methodologies, the firm works in partnership with its clients and other progressive legal providers to create efficient and effective legal ecosystems. The firm combines its collective knowledge, skills and resources to deliver solutions that help clients to access the right service at the right price – meeting their own budgetary and value challenges.
The firm’s determination to work more effectively is deep-rooted, as is its commitment to innovation. In November 2017, the firm introduced a single operating model, the asb law way. This provides a framework that helps to deliver effective and consistent service, share insights and collaborate internally and externally. The firm continues to evolve its operational model and focus on new metrics which include daily proactive resource management, cost-predictability, strength of client relationships and collaboration.
PEOPLE Acknowledging the critical part played by motivated and engaged employees in delivering services and achieving business success, asb law’s commitment to employee engagement remains one of the four pillars of its strategy. A formalised people engagement plan supports employee ambitions and an innovative rewards programme based on client satisfaction measures ensures alignment with the firm’s vision and values.
