Directory success for the Charles Russell Speechlys sport group

The highly regarded legal directory, Chambers & Partners has listed Charles Russell Speechlys in its top tier for Sport- UK Wide in its latest 2016/17 rankings.

The Sport group are now recognised as a Tier 1 practice by both Chambers and Legal 500 (who also awarded the group the TMT Firm (Specialism of the Year) Award for its Sports work in 2015/16). 

Both directories’ research is based on feedback from clients, contemporaries, industry bodies, business leaders, general counsels and in house lawyers, chambers and silks operating within the UK.
