Charles Russell Speechlys nominated for Annual STEP awards 2017/18 including Family Business Advisory Practice of the Year
Charles Russell Speechlys is delighted to be a finalist in the Family Business Advisory Practice of the Year and Private Client Legal Team of the Year (large firm) categories at the Annual STEP awards 2017/18. Now in its twelfth year, the STEP awards are seen as the hallmark of quality within the private wealth industry, recognising and celebrating excellence among solicitors, lawyers, accountants, barristers, bankers, trust managers and financial advisors.
The Family Business Advisory award nomination is a testament to the firm’s commitment to supporting clients of this nature. We have spent the past eight months researching our clients and contacts working in the family business world to understand better the challenges they face from both their business and personal perspectives; enabling us to articulate more clearly how best to advise them. In March 2017 we published a major piece of research, “The Connected Generation: Rebooting family business succession for the digital age”. The report looks at the impact of technology on how family businesses are dealing with succession, with a follow up comprehensive guide, endorsed by INSEAD, to focus from the business’s perspective on key succession issues.
We are pleased to see the work of the wider Private Client team recognised as finalists for Private Client Legal Team of the Year (large firm) again. The team have had an exceptional year advising clients on the changes in the Non Dom regulations under tight timeframes.
