Meet Aashay

Since qualifying with Lawrence Stephens in 2017, Aashay has gained significant experience in corporate, banking and finance matters, working with clients across a range of sectors including IT, real estate, retail and hospitality.

Aashay mainly advises on corporate and commercial matters, specialising in drafting bespoke Articles of Association, Shareholder Agreements and LLP Agreements across a number of different sectors including IT, hospitality, retail and property. He has also acted on a number of share and asset sales, acquisitions and mergers. A slightly smaller, but equally important part of Aashay’s practice is the banking and finance side; he has acted for both borrowers and lenders in producing, and advising upon, security documentation and facility agreements.

Aashay prefers taking a personal approach with his clients, speaking on the phone where possible and making every effort to get to know them and their business needs. This personal approach enables Aashay to better understand his clients’ business needs, and in an ever changing world, this fundamental to running a successful practice.

Outside work, Aashay is a self-confessed sport nut and regularly plays rugby and golf. He is also in the process of training to be a Level 1 certified American Football coach and could spend endless hours watching and analysing NFL. Aashay loves cooking, and can regularly be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
