Charles Russell Speechlys shortlisted in two categories for The Lawyer Awards 2023

Charles Russell Speechlys has been shortlisted in two categories for The Lawyer Awards 2023: Real Estate Team of the Year and Pro Bono Initiative of the Year.

The Lawyer Awards celebrates the best of the legal sector and honours lawyers and firms across a range of diverse areas, considering their success, achievements and growth over the last 12 months.

The London Real Estate team at Charles Russell Speechlys is recognised for working with longstanding client, Air Products, on their very significant and highly complex green hydrogen production facility at the Port of Immingham, one of the first in the UK. The new green hydrogen facility is key to delivering the UK’s leading port complex energy decarbonisation programme. The team also advised over their entire property portfolio in England and Wales, involving strategic advice over their key operational site leases and pipeline arrangements. The team was led by both Ingrid Saffin (Partner – Real Estate) and Eddie Richards (Partner – Real Estate), and supported by Claire Fallows (Partner – Planning), David Haines (Partner – Real Estate Disputes), Andrew Keeley (Partner – Construction, Engineering and Projects), Rachael Davidson (Senior Associate – Planning) and Charlotte Major (Associate – Real Estate).

The pro bono initiative of the year highlights the Firm’s collaborative pro bono Windrush Compensation Scheme Initiative with seven other law firms and the non-profit, Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit (GMIAU). The initiative provides vital access to justice for those who have experienced fiscal and emotional loss and damage due to the decades of poor treatment they received at the hands of the Home Office. Charles Russell Speechlys is currently acting for seven GMIAU clients, with Sarah Farrelly (Senior Associate – Pro Bono), Kelvin Tanner (Partner – Immigration) and Sarah Higgins (Partner – Family) leading on the project.

The winners will be announced at The Lawyer Awards on Tuesday 20 June 2023 at JW Marriott Grosvenor House London.
