Charles Russell Speechlys today announces the creation of a new ‘Advanced Client Solutions’ team, made up of a total of ten newly created full-time job roles (all UK-based). The Firm begins hiring into the new department today and there will be 18 full-time roles by the end of 2024.

"This is a crucial step in our innovation journey, and I am confident that it will deliver value in some of the places where it is most needed. This is the first of many steps to come, and we have other plans within our broader innovation strategy that we look forward to sharing details of with the market in due course.
