We are aware that there is a firm called Ashton Solicitors (SRA ID:514857) whose registered office is at 19 Hanover Square Leeds. Ashton Solicitors have received correspondence from several people who have received a fax from “Rob Adam, Principal Partner” at Ashton Partners with a crudely worded scam.

The website address appears to have been registered in Russia on (28/06/2017) and we are liaising with our website provider to see if it can be taken down.

Ashtons Legal have notified the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) of this fraudulent behaviour. We have also placed announcements on our social media pages to inform clients and other firms of this fact, as well as highlighting the matter in Google searches.
