Charles Russell Speechlys is pleased to announce its legal 500 rankings for 2015.

Charles Russell Speechlys is pleased to announce that the firm was ranked in 71 work type/geographic categories in the 2015 edition of the UK Legal 500, with 47 rankings for the London office and 12 apiece for teams based in the Cheltenham and Guildford offices.

The increased number of rankings, 10 more than either legacy firm achieved prior to the merger, is testament to the enhanced strength and depth of the combined firm's resources.

45 of the firm’s rankings were in either Tier 1 or Tier 2, and this year marks the first time that the Family and Sport teams have been recognised in the top tier, positioning them as the among the very best practices for their respective disciplines in the country.

In addition to the success of Charles Russell Speechlys’ sector and service line teams, 22 of the firm’s lawyers were recognised in the elite list of Leading Individuals, with a further 133 listed as Recommended Lawyers. As is the case with the team rankings, the lawyers listed as either Leading Individuals or Recommended Lawyers hail from all three UK-based offices.

The UK Legal 500 rankings arrive off the back of a strong showing by the Paris office in the Legal 500 EMEA rankings earlier in the year, and provide further evidence of the increased level of legal expertise provided by the firm, both throughout the wider UK and internationally.
