Tim is the CEO and Founder of Aspinall Consultants Limited. He works with law firms, investors and new entrants into the legal services market on strategic projects including strategy reviews, pricing, productivity, client development, and mergers & acquisitions.

As a result the firm won many awards, including Best Managed Firm and saw sustained revenue and profit growth.
Tim’s strategic thinking, leadership skills and ability to get things done have been widely praised. Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession described him as “an exceptionally fine leader” and Tim features in the books Legal Eagles that “profiles sixteen visionary lawyers from around the globe”, and Leading the Professionals that gives “a fascinating insight into leadership in practice”.
He speaks regularly at conferences around the world. He is a well-known commentator on the legal services market, the impact of new entrants and how law firms should respond to those challenges.
