Charles Russell Speechlys crowned 'best legal team' at the WealthBriefing Swiss Awards 2018
Charles Russell Speechlys was last night crowned 'best legal team' in the 5th WealthBriefing Swiss Awards, at a glittering awards dinner in Geneva. Fighting off stiff competition in the Legal Team category, the triumph is yet another milestone in establishing the firm’s growing reputation as a leading top-tier private client firm in Switzerland. Mark Summers, head of the firm’s Zurich office, says:
"We are delighted to have been voted the winner of this prestigious award by so many of the industry’s great and good. It is a testament to the hard work that the team have put in over the last 12 months, and reflects just how far we have come in a relatively short time since committing to a long term and full service presence in Switzerland. Everyone has really pulled together to ensure we continue to deliver the highest level of service to our clients, and achieve recognition as a leading top-tier private client firm in Switzerland”.
Showcasing ‘best of breed’ providers in the global private banking, wealth management and trusted advisor communities, the prestigious awards recognise companies, teams and individuals deemed to have ‘demonstrated innovation and excellence during 2017’.
