New ASB Law chief vows to expand in South East

South East firm ASB Law has appointed corporate lawyer Russell Bell as its new senior partner, after Ray Harris completed his term at the end of April.

Symbolically, Bell is a corporate lawyer, whereas Harris is a private client specialist.

Bell, who has been at the firm for thirty years and who also had a stint as managing partner, said he was looking forward to playing his part in achieving further significant growth for the firm.

He said: “Our aim is to position ASB law as the largest law firm in the region.”

His predecessor Harris was integral in the merger of Argles & Court, Stoneham and Burstows, which joined forces in 1999 to form ASB.

Harris will continue as head of the firm’s wills, trust and probate department.
