Guest Speaker: Ashley Fredericks

Ashley Fredericks is the Supervising Solicitor on the Business and Enterprise Law Service in the Nottingham Law School Legal Advice Centre. The Business and Enterprise Law Service supports businesses, entrepreneurs and charities which simply cannot afford to pay for legal advice at the rates set by more standard private practice law firms. In this way, Ashley and the Legal Advice Centre target meeting a previously un-met need of the Midlands business community.

Ashley trained at Bond Dickinson LLP in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, where he completed a corporate and insolvency disputes focused training contract.

Upon qualification, Ashley specialised in contentious and non-contentious corporate restructuring/insolvency matters at Gateley Plc, where he was exposed to a variety of matters across multiple sectors which involved work both in and out of the courtroom.

Outside of the business, Ashley is a trustee and director of Citizens Advice Nottingham & District, the charitable company which runs the Nottingham branch of CAB. Ashley sits on the finance and fundraising committees, as well as the main board.
