The “highly-reputable” corporate finance team at asb law is delighted to announce the appointment of Chris Dodd as legal director and head of the corporate finance team. Chris will work alongside newly promoted partner, Daniel Tozer, who will continue in his role as team leader in the Kent office.
Prior to joining, Chris held the role of legal director and company secretary at one of the UK’s largest facilities management companies, OCS Group UK. While there he also sat on the UK executive group, held a managing director role in one of the company’s most prominent subsidiaries, and led OCS’s alliance with like-minded companies in Western Europe.

Talking about the changes, Chris Dodd said: “This is an exciting time for asb law as we evolve our strategy to deliver creative and collaborative legal solutions that exceed client expectations. Daniel and I are looking forward to supporting our highly productive team in delivering the type of high value transactional projects for which asb law quite rightly has a strong reputation.”
