Industry accolades for Charles Russell Speechly’s private client team Lawyers from Charles Russell Speechlys’ private client team in Guildford have been singled out by national, independent industry publications for excellence in their field.

James Lister and Gareth Walliss have been included in eprivateclient’s 2015 Top 35 private client advisors under 35 – an initiative to identify rising stars of the private client professions across the UK. James is a specialist trust and estates litigator and Gareth has particular expertise in asset protection and succession planning.

William Marriott, who heads up the private property team, was identified as one of Citywealth’s future leaders in its list of young rising stars in the private wealth industry. The list featured just 13 lawyers selected from across the UK. It is not only rising stars at Charles Russell Speechlys who have been recognised for their outstanding achievements. Three senior fee earners have also been identified as top performers in the industry. Duncan Elson, who also heads up the Guildford office, Sally Ashford and Louise Harrhy were featured in the prestigious Spears 500 list. Lawyers included in the Spears 500 guide to the UK’s top private client advisers have all been peer reviewed and validated with client feedback.

Duncan Elson heads up the firm’s litigation and dispute resolution group as well as the specialist contentious trusts and estates group. Sally Ashford leads the noncontentious private client team in Guildford and together with Louise Harrhy, has particular expertise in advising high net worth individuals and family business owners. Commenting on the firm’s recent accolades, Duncan Elson says, “It’s hugely competitive and quite a feat to be featured in these prestigious listings and I am delighted that lawyers from our Guildford office have been recognised in this way. It’s a strong external endorsement of our expertise as a leading law firm in the private wealth sector.” In addition to the individual distinctions, a number of private
