Charles Russell Speechlys has extensive experience advising US corporate clients, US citizens and US law firms on a wide range of legal issues, from transaction support and raising finance to people management, data protection and other compliance/governance issues.

We support US businesses operating internationally by managing and co-ordinating cross-border transactions, disputes and advisory projects, working either alongside our closely knit network of partner law firms or with local firms selected by clients and other advisers.

Our international capability in cross-border projects is enhanced by our lawyers, who are dual qualified in other European jurisdictions and able to advise under common and civil laws.

We also have a leading US/UK private client practice acting for families and family offices, successful entrepreneurs, private banks and wealth managers. We are particularly noted for our work dealing with US/UK tax planning and related issues.

Extensive experience over the past 30 years gives us a good understanding of the service delivery requirements and expectations of US firms and their clients, particularly on transactions that work to strict deadlines.

We maintain strong current links with our counterparts in the US and our partners are regular and active participants in the American Bar Association, STEP USA, INTA and BritishAmerican Business.
