About Us

Kelly Luft Stanley & Ashton Advocates
 

Kelly Luft Stanley & Ashton is the longest established legal practice in the Isle of Man, tracing its heritage back to 1844, some 15 years before the incorporation of the Isle of Man Law Society in 1859 - of which Jason Stanley was President from January 2011 to January 2013, and of which Kevin O'Riordan was President from January 2013 to January 2015.

Although the practice has had numerous incarnations over the past 170 years, today the practice is carried on under the name of Kelly Luft Stanley and Ashton, the name it has maintained for over 40 years.

Previously located for over 70 years in Athol Street opposite the Old Courthouse, in 2004 following the relocation of the Isle of Man Courts of Justice the firm chose to relocate to improved premises opposite the new Court buildings.  

The firm's premises enjoy an ideal location, convenient for the Isle of Man Courts of Justice, the Isle of Man Land and Deeds Registries, the Isle of Man Companies Registry, the offices of the Registrar of births deaths and marriages, the Isle of Man Probate Office, as well as the Isle of Man Shipping and Aircraft Registries.

The partners of the firm are Jason Stanley who has practised coninuously in the Isle of Man since being called to the Manx bar in 1991, and Jenifer Stanley who previously worked in Travers Smith and Cains and who joined the firm in 2009 after having time away from practice to raise a family.

We are a family firm through and through, and take pride in the high standards of work and integrity, for which the firm is renouned.
