Charles Russell Senior Associate wins Spear's Young Turk Award 2014

This article was written prior to the formation of Charles Russell Speechlys, through the merger between Charles Russell and Speechly Bircham.

We are delighted to announce that Senior Associate Nicola Thorpe has won 'Tax and Trust Lawyer' at the Spear's Young Turk Awards 2014.

Spear’s is a multi-award-winning wealth management and luxury lifestyle media brand whose online and flagship magazine is well established in the ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) community. The Spear’s Young Turk Awards recognise future leaders in the sector, celebrating rising stars across a variety of categories from wealth management and private banking to law, accountancy, art and property.

The process involved online nominations before a shortlist of five was drawn up and a winner selected by the judges (senior figures in the wealth industry). Nicola was up against stiff competition and was presented with her award at a special lunch on 2 July.

Ian Cooke, Head of the Private Wealth Sector at Charles Russell commented: "This is a fantastic accolade for Nicola and we are thrilled that she has been recognised in this way. We pride ourselves on our strong reputation in this area which is driven by the quality of our people and reflected in the strong year on year growth of our business."
