Charles Russell Shortlisted for Five Legal 500 UK Awards 2014

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

Congratulations go to Nicola Thorpe on being included as one of eprivateclient's Top 35 Under 35 2014.
eprivateclient is a leading wealth sector media group providing a news, information and analysis service for private client practitioners, including lawyers, accountants, trustees and fee-based IFAs.

The Top 35 Under 35 is designed to identify, recognise, introduce and promote the rising stars of the private client professions. The process began with an open call for nominations from the UK and UK offshore (Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of Man) for young and upcoming stars within the private client advisory professions, be they lawyers, accountants, trustees or any other professional intermediary. Once the nomination period had closed each nominee was judged on the strength of their nomination(s). Factors considered include who made the nomination, an individual's achievements and number of nominations.

This accolade comes hot on the heels of the Spear's Young Turk Award that Nicola won in July.
