Record number of leading individuals for Charles Russell Speechlys in Chambers HNW 2022

Charles Russell Speechlys has had its best year yet in the Chambers High Net Worth 2022 guide with a record number of leading individuals listed across twelve HNW practice groups. Once again the Private Wealth group were top ranked in Band 1 for no fewer than eight categories, demonstrating the strength in depth of the practice. This included areas such as Private Wealth Law (within all three UK offices and internationally); Private Wealth Disputes; Art & Cultural Property Law and Family Offices & Funds Structuring. They were also amongst the top ranked firms for Family/Matrimonial: Ultra High Net Worth; Real Estate: High Value Residential and High Net Worth Immigration.

Market commentary emphasised the ability to provide a joined up, full service offering to high net worth clients across the UK and internationally. This is evidenced by the fact the group received the most top ranked listings, across all categories, of all the UK Band One Private Wealth law firms, including where the firm has offices internationally.

Feedback included: "The strength of the department is in the breadth. They have an advantage over other firms in having a much broader scope." "I love working with the team at Charles Russell Speechlys because they work so well together. They are really cohesive and collaborative. They are really intelligent, hard-working and client-friendly. Everything is very seamless." "They demonstrate excellent technical knowledge and have a wealth of resources to call on from their colleagues to address any issues out of scope."

The Chambers High Net Worth guide lists the leading professional advisers to the Private Wealth market as identified by clients and peers in the industry. Chambers research is conducted by 200 Research Analysts, across 200 jurisdictions and provides nearly 6,000 rankings tables. Hundreds of thousands of responses are collected annually, the majority through in-depth interviews.

Piers Master, Head of Private Wealth at Charles Russell Speechlys, commented:

"We are delighted to see these excellent results after a tremendous amount of hard work from everyone in the Charles Russell Speechlys’ Private Wealth teams over the past 12 months.
