Ascentant was founded in 2016 by Kevin Drew, a seasoned Legal Cashier with many years experience of working with Legal Practices in London. We now work across the East Midlands from our Derby office, covering Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester and London.
Having progressed to Cashier Management roles, Kevin assisted with the set up of several high profile US Law Firms in the UK, advising on everything from compliance with Solicitors Accounts Rules and Anti Money Laundering to VAT, Payroll and Partner Taxation.
It was while working with some of the smaller UK start ups that the need became apparent for flexible, on demand, part time Legal Cashiering rather than recruiting a full time, in house Legal Cashier. In addition to this, smaller practices pushed on space and resources, were exploring “offsite” possibilities. From this, Kevin explored, developed and launched Ascentant, providing Outsourced Legal Cashiering in addition to general Bookkeeping and Accountancy support.
