 New Location Head for Ashfords' Taunton Office

National provider of legal, regulatory and professional services Ashfords LLP, has appointed Corporate Partner Stuart Mathews as Location Head to lead the firms’ Taunton office. Stuart’s role will focus on continuing to increase the firm’s presence and offering in the Taunton and Somerset marketplace.

Stuart Mathews commented on his appointment: “We are very committed to Taunton, and it is a great privilege to be taking on this role to continue supporting the local marketplace and building on our strong reputation. We pride ourselves on being active in our communities that we operate in, and with ambitious opportunities arising across Taunton we are proud to be a part of this exciting time“.

Jason Squire, Partner in the firm’s Commercial Litigation Team, has been head of the Taunton office for 5 years and will be stepping down from the position to focus on developing the firm’s Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution offering in Somerset and across Ashfords’ West Country offices.

Ashfords’ priorities go beyond business as the firm has announced its continued headline sponsorship of the Taunton Marathon and Half Marathon, which will be taking place on Sunday 8 April 2018. Ashfords has also sponsored the award for ‘Somerset Manufacturer and Producer’ at the Somerset Business Awards 2017, and has sponsored and participated in Hinkley Point C supply chains events, including a panel debate alongside industry experts, discussing the legal aspects around making your business ‘Hinkley-ready’.
