Aston Knight Solicitors was established in 2011.

Our aim was not to become the largest firm, or to have the most offices, or to provide the most services.

Our aim was to remain specialists in the areas we work and provide a level of service that will result in growth through recommendations.

We have achieved this by employing the finest solicitors, experts within their areas of law, with an enviable reputation for their technical knowledge and lateral thinking resulting in exceptional results for our clients.

We have created a firm committed to our client’s needs, placing the best result for our clients at the centre of everything we do, ensuring you get the result you deserve.

We also expect to be judged on more than just results. We expect to be judged on our customer service and our relationships with our clients.

We obtain regular feedback during and at the conclusion of our case and are proud to see a 100% recommendation rate.

Our Team

  • Ayoub Khan

    Managing Director and Solicitor | LLB (Hons), PGdip

    Ayoub grew up in Bury before graduating from the University of Lancaster. After then completing his Post Graduate Diploma in Law at the College of Law, Chester, he joined a prestigious London magic-circle firm where he worked on a multi-million pound product liability claim, being the highest value claim of its type in the world. He then returned to the North West where he joined a leading firm before leaving to start his own specialist practice.

    Whilst Ayoub rarely conducts cases personally these days (the rigours of practice management eating up the majority of time), he continues to oversee and support solicitors, particularly in higher value and more complex cases.

    In an era in which many litigation firms have been forced to close, or have succumbed to a low-quality-high-output approach, Ayoub has bucked the trend by building a thriving specialist practice, regarded as one of the strongest firms in the North West and regularly instructed in very high value matters.

    Ayoub is renowned for his high (and often exacting!) standards for the quality of work produced by the Firm and his solicitors, whilst promoting a friendly and supportive work culture.

    Ayoub hopes to continue to build upon the Firm’s successes and to further cement its status as a quality-focussed and respected practice in the years to come.
