Ashley Harkus

I qualified as a solicitor  1996 and joined our  firm in 1998 becoming a Partner in 2001 and Managing Partner in 2010.

I am  the Head of our Employment Law  department having dealt with a wide variety of  employer and employee employment matters  over the last 20 years including  advising on, drafting and negotiating, settlement agreements, , advising on disciplinary, grievance and capability procedures, providing  HR support to local businesses and conducting contested Employment Tribunal cases

As an advocate in a variety of lower courts  and Tribunals since 1996, duty solicitor  and  solicitor Advocate (higher courts  crime) since 2007 I also supervise  and head our criminal  department with a particular interest in defending regulatory offences (product safety, health and safety, food standards) and  road traffic matters.

I graduated from Glamorgan university with a 2.1 in law in 1993  and  completed the legal practice course there in 1994.  I am in the privileged position to manage a firm I have great affection for with colleagues who I believe are dedicated and talented whilst  practising in areas of law that I enjoy.

I am also past President and current treasurer of Monmouthshire Incorporated Law society, current Chair of Torfaen Business Voice and a committee member of Torfaen Strategic Economic Forum.
