UK firm Asons to recruit up to 150 staff this year
Asons Solicitors, based in Bolton, is set to recruit up to 150 extra staff this year. Representatives from the firm say that fast growth in clinical negligence and personal injury work has prompted plans for the launch of a full corporate legal services arm in May.
The predictions follow swift growth last year, when the firm grew from its staff from just 30 staff to 100 people.
Asons chief executive Imran Akram said: “This is a big move for us. The legal landscape is changing drastically in a way that could see smaller law firms closing their doors.
“Yet, with some forward planning, we’ve been able to develop a business model that will brave the legal reforms.”
