For the third consecutive year, Charles Russell Speechlys is proud to announce four associates listed in the prestigious eprivateclient Top 35 Under 35 rankings, demonstrating the outstanding talent of “next generation” lawyers at the firm. Over the past few months, senior practitioners from the private wealth community have been nominating “upcoming stars” within the private client advisory professions (from the UK and Crown Dependencies), including lawyers, accountants, trustees, residential property buying agents and other private client professionals.

eprivateclient received just under 500 nominations from 79 different firms and after a rigorous research process looking at each individuals’ achievements over the past 12 months, career progression and quality, seniority and extensiveness of nominations, have this morning announced the 70 individuals (35 male and 35 female) selected this year.

In previous years, Charles Russell Speechlys has succeeded with most individuals listed within the legal industry and have this year built on that achievement with the most listings of any other firm in the rankings.

As reported by eprivateclient:

“One firm – Charles Russell Speechlys – is represented by four Top 35 Under 35s, a further four firms (Deloitte, EY, Farrer & Co and KPMG) employ three Top 35 Under 35s each, and there are a total of 53 firms to feature this year”.

The four individuals listed were Oliver Little and Sarah Wray from the Tax, Trusts & Succession team in London, Harman Bains from the Tax, Trusts & Succession team in Cheltenham and Rebecca Day from the Residential Property team in London.

“We are delighted that Oliver, Sarah, Harman and Rebecca have been recognised for their outstanding talent and achievements, which reflects an incredible amount of hard work and dedication to the Private Wealth community. We are thrilled to have more listings than any other firm, demonstrating our commitment to nurturing the next generation and the investment we make to ensure we have the best possible junior talent in the industry. We are proud to have acted for several of our clients for over 100 years – this could only have been achieved through providing the highest standards of service and successful succession planning.”
