Somerset House is an iconic London landmark and leading centre for contemporary culture. We are delighted to support them on an ongoing basis by sponsoring a series of free public exhibitions in the Terrace Rooms.
This is the perfect collaboration. Why? Because our values, identity and culture are reflected in Somerset House.
For 250 years, Somerset House has played a central role in our society as a place where our culture and collective understanding of the world is shaped and defined within a historic setting. Today Somerset House celebrates its heritage by looking to the future to create inspirational experiences for today’s visitors.
At Charles Russell Speechlys, we take the same approach.
We have a long history in law and have carefully and deliberately designed a firm with equal strength in commercial and personal law, taking all of a client’s considerations into account. We think about long-term impacts and outcomes: for the firm, for our people, for our clients and their interests. We invest time, effort and emotion in building relationships based on trust and loyalty.
Somerset House understands how to bring contemporary culture to life, nurturing creativity and helping more people engage with its cultural programme. We are the same. We passionately take the same approach to way we communicate with our clients. We ensure that people understand what we say and what our advice means. We are forever curious, asking if the approach is right for each client, each time.
The Charles Russell Speechlys Terrace Room exhibitions at Somerset House will open the world of art and culture for varied audiences, from the seasoned art lover to the first time visitor, in the same way that the firm believes in growing a diversity of talent to facilitate the varied client relationships that inform our work. This is demonstrated by the launch of our Solicitor Apprenticeship Programme in September 2017.
Charles Russell Speechlys works with a variety of different sized organisations, including supporting growth businesses throughout their business life cycle. Likewise, Somerset House has established a community of established and emerging artists in Somerset House Studios and broader creative enterprises across the site in the same way that supporting growth businesses is at the heart of who we are. Both organisations encourage collaborative working to help and support each other whenever we can and share our skills, knowledge and experience as part of a collective intelligence.
Through this relationship we will present a number of different exhibitions which reflects the breadth of our offering and expertise we offer.
Somerset House and Charles Russell Speechlys are looking forward to bringing their organisational values together to create a partnership that can be enjoyed by our clients, contacts and employees for many years to come.
