Charles Russell Speechlys Legal 500 UK Solicitors 2024 Rankings Update

Twenty-two lawyers at Charles Russell Speechlys have been awarded new accolades in the 2024 edition of The Legal 500 UK Solicitors 2024 rankings – a recognition of their continued hard work and the exceptional service they provide to clients daily.

The rankings form one of the leading guides to law firms and solicitors. They reflect months of analysis and interviews, and the review of tens of thousands of submissions to “select the very best lawyers and law firms in the UK”. Legal 500 also canvasses the views of more than 40,000 GCs and clients for the rankings.

Five of our lawyers have been newly accepted into the ‘Legal 500 Hall of Fame’ this year; eight became ‘Leading Individuals’; four are now ‘Next Generation Partners’; and another four are new ‘Rising Stars’. A full list of individuals who have been awarded accolades can be found below.

As a Firm, we maintained consistent strong rankings in 72 different legal categories and are grateful to have received several very positive testimonials from our clients.

Simon Ridpath, Managing Partner at Charles Russell Speechlys, comments:

As a Firm that is intently focused on building long-term and long-lasting relationships with our clients, our people are by far our greatest asset. The two points that stand out to me in this year’s rankings are the glowing feedback and testimonials our clients provided, and the number of new people whose efforts are being awarded with new accolades. We would like to extend a warm thank you to our clients for recognising and appreciating the work we do for them and providing such positive feedback and testimonials across the board.
