Simon Ridpath featured in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 list

Managing Partner, Simon Ridpath, has been included in The Lawyer’s Hot 100 list, published today.

The prestigious list from leading UK legal magazine The Lawyer celebrates trailblazing lawyers from across the entire profession in the UK – private practice, in-house and the Bar.

The Lawyer says: "Simon Ridpath is a breath of fresh air at Charles Russell Speechlys. After training at a small Bedford firm, doing everything from insolvency to pre-publication libel reading at the local paper, Ridpath joined legacy Speechly Bircham in 2007 and in July 2019 was elected the first new managing partner since the 2014 merger of Speechly Bircham and Charles Russell."

As part of the Hot 100 career quiz, Simon was asked: What advice would you give to someone who wants to get to where you are/do the job you do?

He responds:

"You need to care about what you do and who you act for. That care needs to be demonstrable and genuine. To listen, think and advise at the pace required in an ever-quickening world requires energy and enthusiasm..."
