A solicitor specialising in commercial and residential property law has joined Setfords Solicitors.
Ash Johnson, who is based in Devon, had previously worked for traditional firms in the South West including Michelmores and Wolferstans.
Ash specialises in residential and commercial property including agricultural buildings, public houses and retailers. He is also the author of “How to Start a Business – Legal Information for Entrepreneurs”.
Ash said: “I have long believed there is a more effective way of conducting legal work and consultancy is the answer.
“I can devote more of my time to my clients and charge more reasonable fees because I don’t have to worry about the overheads. Also, I can work more flexibly, and even enjoy a better work-life balance.”
Co-CEO Chris Setford said: “We are delighted Ash has decided to join Setfords as a consultant. His wish to deliver a better service to his clients and enjoy a better work-life balance means consultancy at Setfords made perfect sense. We have no doubt Ash will thrive.”
Co-CEO Guy Setford added: “Ash brings a wealth of experience and expertise within commercial and residential property law and we look forward to seeing him succeed as a consultant.”
