Charles Russell Speechlys secures first award for the newly merged firm
We are delighted to announce that Charles Russell Speechlys was awarded the ‘Private Client Team of the Year’ at the prestigious Legal Week - British Legal Awards 2014, held at Old Billingsgate last night. This is particularly exciting as not only is this the first award of our newly merged firm, but it reaffirms the strength in our combined expertise and commitment to the Private Wealth sector.
The recent merger has reinforced our ability to provide a seamless service for wealthy individuals, family offices, private banks, trustees and wealth managers and large, privately held businesses. To do this we combine advisory skills, developed in the world of Private Wealth, with our business law expertise. On any measure Charles Russell Speechlys is a world leader in the private wealth market.
The award was based on a submission covering legal expertise and innovation, business winning, client care, employee development and team working. The winners were decided by an independent judging panel, chaired by Alasdair Douglas, chairman of the City of London Law Society. The judging panel was made up of general counsel and other senior members of the legal community, including several former law firm managing partners.
Bart Peerless, Head of the Private Client team said:
‘With our new larger and broader private client division we are confident of our ability to provide best in class advice to all our private clients. This is a fantastic accolade for the team and underlines Charles Russell Speechlys’ commitment to the private wealth sector.”
