Legal 500 UK 2016 marks a record-breaking year for Charles Russell Speechlys

We are delighted to be recognised through our rankings in the Legal 500 UK 2016, which were launched on 14 September. Charles Russell Speechlys has been recommended across 73 work categories and awarded Tier 1 status in 17 categories, both records for the firm.

The rankings achieved for our firm reflect our focus, both in terms of types of client we advise and the industries in which they operate. This is apparent in both our regional and London offices where we have achieved great rankings for a range of commercial and corporate services and for those services we provide to individuals and families.

We are particularly pleased that our London private client focused teams have been recognised through prestigious Tier 1 rankings for both Personal Tax, Trusts & Probate and Contentious Trusts & Estates for the first time.

Commenting on the firm’s latest accolades, Daryl Atkinson, Director of Marketing & Business Development at Charles Russell Speechlys, said: “We are pleased to see that our post-merger strategic focus continues to receive industry-wide recognition. The feedback from the market is that we are making great strides in our target areas which has resulted in our improved rankings.” 

Daryl added: “As well as a great team performance, many of our lawyers have also been recognised through individual rankings. 26 of our partners have been listed as Elite Leading lawyers, as well as a further 123 lawyers who were recommended.”
