BLB Commercial Partner moves to Bath office

BLB Solicitors increases its presence in the local business community with company commercial partner, Frank Scott-Ashe, now based in Bath.

Frank commented that he was delighted to be able to support local businesses more closely as they wait for the economic recovery to take hold. As Frank lives in Wiltshire, he will remain well placed to continue to service the needs of businesses in Wiltshire too while BLB develops its commercial team in Bath.

He has more than 10 years experience advising entrepreneurs, SME’s and large private companies on a wide range of issues. He advises on business start-ups including partnerships and company incorporations and is regularly involved in business sales and purchases.

Frank has received a varied series of instructions over the past 12 months and is encouraged to see a growth in new businesses and people willing to test the market with new projects and ideas in spite of the tough economic climate. Recent highlights include advising a GP led health centre on a health services contract awarded by a primary care trust (the only contract of its kind in the South West). In addition, Frank has been advising a Gibraltar company on its project to raise funding to build a replica biplane to re-enact the first flight over Mount Everest in 1933. There are also plans to produce an IMAX film and full feature length film of this audacious expedition.

Stephen Bishop, BLB’s managing partner, commented, “we are delighted with Frank’s move to the Bath office and look forward to welcoming entrepreneurs and businesses to our offices”.
