Gareth Walliss named in 2017 eprivateclient Top 35 Under 35
For the third year in succession, Gareth Walliss, a solicitor at Charles Russell Speechlys in Guildford, has been selected by eprivateclient as one of the UK’s Top 35 private client advisors under the age of 35.
eprivateclient’s ‘Top 35 private client advisors under 35’ is a highly acclaimed annual initiative which identifies rising stars amongst the private client professions across the UK. The list includes lawyers, accountants, trustees and other professional intermediaries.
Gareth, a Senior Associate at Charles Russell Speechlys, joined the rapidly growing firm six years ago. He has particular expertise in asset protection and succession planning and deals with the creation and administration of trusts, lifetime and post death tax planning and the administration of complex and frequently cross border estates. His clients include both UK and non-UK domiciled high net worth individuals, trustees and charities.
Sally Ashford, Partner and Head of the non-contentious Private Client team in Guildford says, “eprivateclient’s list is collated following a review of extensive nominations and professional achievements. We are delighted that, for the third successive year, Gareth has been recognised for his outstanding talent and achievements to date. He is an asset to the firm and is highly respected by clients and colleagues.”
In addition to this achievement, Gareth has also been shortlisted for ‘Lawyer of the Year (Associate)’ at the Citywealth Future Leaders Awards alongside fellow Guildford-based Senior Associate William Rollin who has been shortlisted for ‘Family Lawyer of the Year (Associate)’. Gareth comments, “While it is a real honour to be recognised by the industry for my work, it reflects the market-leading capabilities of the whole Private Client team at Charles Russell Speechlys in Guildford."
