Chris Marston, the CEO of LawNet said: “Ashtons’ greatest achievement has been their people. Their collaborative and trusting environment was illustrated across the legal community when they deployed a paid time off policy in 2015; a policy which has subsequently been copied by a number of other firms including those within the LawNet community.

“The journey continues with an ever greater degree of flexible and agile working and outcome focused objectives.”

Ashtons has gained the Gold status Investors in People standard, and gone from having five lawyers named in the Legal 500 Leading Individuals list for East Anglia in 2014 to 25 this year.

Ashtons’ CEO Ed O’Rourke said: “I am hugely proud of my team here at Ashtons; this award recognises everything they do to make this firm one that has stands out against our peers as the law firm of the year.”

The firm employs 380 people across its Cambridge, Norwich, Ipswich, and Bury St Edmunds offices.
