Leading the way with a global client base

Ashurst is a leading international law firm with world class capability and a prestigious global client base. The firm has 27 offices in 16 countries and offers the reach and insight of a global network, combined with the knowledge and understanding of local markets. With 420 partners and a further 1,450 lawyers working across 10 different time zones, the firm is able to respond to clients wherever and whenever required.

Ashurst established a legal sourcing and business support office in Glasgow in August 2013 to create a centre of excellence to drive change within the firm globally. There are two main elements to the Glasgow office – the business support functions and a new legal sourcing model. Through the new legal sourcing model, the firm is able to provide clients with a solution

which enables the more efficient delivery of certain types of work.

The Glasgow hub provides a central base for many of our global business support functions, including finance, IT, HR, risk and compliance, business development, expertise and business services.

The office has grown to more than 230 staff in just over two years from opening and Ashurst has clear plans for further growth in the scale and scope of support provided from Glasgow.

Enjoy the vitality and passion of Buenos Aires without leaving Glasgow

Many years ago , we fell in love with the vibrancy of Buenos Aires, a city where cosmopolitan sophistication collides with an irresistibly chaotic energy. It’s a beguiling, emotional and all embracing place to be.

When we started CAU , our vision was to capture that spirit in a restaurant that would fit right into the heart of Palermo, Buenos Aires. If we could replicate that vitality, passion and sense of fun, we knew CAU would be a place people would want to spend time.

Our menu embraces Buenos Aires cuisine, a melting pot of comfort food inspired by Italy and Spain alongside the jewel in Argentina’s crown, its beef.

Mouthwatering steaks, burgers and steak sandwiches are joined by a tempting selection of more-ish favourites, each with a distinctive Buenos Aires twist.

CAU is open everyday from 10am for brunch!
