We are privileged at Charles Russell Speechlys to work with incredible clients every day, and we are looking forward to bringing their varied and interesting stories to a wider audience through this podcast.”

Bart Peerless, Senior Partner, commented: “Having advised clients in the private capital sector for several decades, I know first-hand the relationship that is formed between client and advisor. Through this podcast series, we have been able to have in-depth conversations with our clients about their careers, how they’ve worked with advisors and have heard their advice for future entrepreneurs.”

Client Conversations is the latest podcast from Charles Russell Speechlys and follows sector-specific series including Property Patter and ‘What’s new in employment law’, hosted by Charles Russell Speechlys’ Partners. Client Conversations will be the first podcast series hosted by Simon Ridpath and Bart Peerless.
