Record success for Charles Russell Speechlys’ Private Wealth practice in Chambers HNW 2021 directory
We are delighted to have supported many of our clients, both in the UK and internationally, on a full range of projects to secure and grow their wealth, and that we are once again recognised as a leader in our field in the Chambers High Net Worth 2021 Guide.
Feedback included: "They're completely dedicated to the client's best interests and they're all about working together as a team.", "They are very responsive, very knowledgeable and they really go the extra mile for clients. They go above and beyond." “They are a solid team. They have the breadth, the strength and the team. They're right up there."
We are top ranked in Band 1 in no fewer than eight categories, which is more than any other law firm, for: Private Wealth Law in all three of our UK offices (London, Cheltenham and Guildford) as well as in China (Hong Kong); Private Wealth Disputes (for both London and The South); Art & Cultural Property Law, and a new category for 2021, Family Offices & Funds Structuring. We were also highly ranked in the UK for Family/Matrimonial: High Net Worth; Real Estate: High Value Residential; and High Net Worth Immigration; as well as in Private Wealth Law for Switzerland (Zurich and Geneva).
These rankings are a recognition of the depth and breadth of the support we give to our clients both in the UK and globally on their business and personal legal needs. We are particularly delighted to have entered the rankings at Band 1 for Private Wealth Law in China (Hong Kong) following the recent expansion of the Hong Kong office team, and to have increased rankings for a number of leading individuals within all of the High Net Worth categories, demonstrating our commitment to our own succession planning within the firm, with a strong group of Partners coming through.
