Ashurst LLP


 Our vision is to be the most progressive global law firm. We instinctively take a fresh perspective on situations, exploring whether there are better ways of delivering practical commercial solutions to the challenges our clients face in today’s rapidly changing business landscape. Our shared values of being passionate about quality, delivering through collaboration and thinking differently, drive the way we work with one another and our clients.

Our Work:

Our U.S. Projects team advises on all aspects of project procurement, delivery and financing in the U.S. and coordinates closely with our offices in London, Sydney, Madrid, Paris and Tokyo on the delivery of world class market knowledge to our transactions. Our award-winning practice focuses on public-private partnerships (PPP) and other infrastructure projects in all sectors including rail, road, airport, ports, student housing, courthouses, water and waste and have worked on ground breaking transport and social infrastructure projects across the nation.

Our Global Loans team in New York works closely with our offices in other countries to provide seamless coverage to finance providers and borrowers on a wide range of U.S. and cross-border lending transactions, including leveraged and acquisition finance, general corporate lending, fund finance, lending to the insurance sector, debt and corporate restructurings, and trade and export financings.

Ashurst’s first class team of structured products attorneys offers substantial industry expertise, and provides transactional, and structuring advice to leading international banks. Our Structured Products team has extensive experience advising on all forms of structured products (including notes, warrants and certificates), together with structured bank deposits, and across all underlying asset classes and product structures. We act as program counsel on a number of leading structured product platforms, which provides our team with a steady flow of diverse transactions.

Our team handles structured products ranging from plain vanilla debt and lightly-structured products, such as callable step up notes and fixed to floating rate notes, to products linked to equities, indices, commodities, credit, foreign exchange rates, interest rates, inflation rates, funds, bonds, dynamic strategies and other asset classes and hybrids. We also advise on more complex structured products such as, volatility and hedge fund-linked products.

Ashurst has a first class global derivatives practice offering the full spectrum of transactional, advisory and documentation services for derivatives and structured products.

We have a market-leading, specialist team that advises leading investment banks and other financial institutions and covers the full spectrum of the derivatives area. Unlike many other firms, we have specialist lawyers focused on each area so our expertise encompasses all classes of OTC derivatives, repos, securities lending, repackagings, credit-linked notes and structured products. One of our great strengths is our ability to adapt and move from structuring one product to another quickly thanks to the versatility and depth of knowledge of our team.  As a result, our clients are empowered to respond to changing market demands and enabled to release the most popular products in a short turnaround time.


Pro Bono & DE&I:

At Ashurst we take our responsibility seriously to ensure that everyone has access to legal advice and representation regardless of means. As a law firm, the most effective contribution we can make is to use our knowledge and expertise to assist people and community organizations through the provision of legal services.

Fostering a collaborative, respectful and inclusive culture is key to Ashurst’s vision of being the most progressive global law firm.
