International law firm Ashurst confirmed this month that its Glasgow office has now grown to over 200 staff, making it the firm's fourth largest office globally. Launched with a team of eight in August 2013, Ashurst set out to create a centre of excellence, to drive change and innovation within the firm globally.

This year alone has seen an additional 90 members of staff join in a number of business support roles, as well as in Ashurst's new legal resourcing model.

Ashurst has also created an alternative career proposition for law graduates who are not pursuing the traditional traineeship route. These Legal Analyst roles, as well as new Compliance Officer roles, have seen Ashurst become one of the largest employers of law graduates in Scotland over the past two years.

Mike Polson, Managing Partner of Ashurst Glasgow, said, "We are the first firm to base such an operation in Scotland and our Glasgow office has been grown completely from scratch, creating not only a large number of high quality new jobs in the city, but new careers for law graduates within the rapidly changing legal profession".
