Charles Russell LLP is delighted to announce that it has been named ‘Law Firm of the Year (Family)’ at Spear’s Wealth Management Awards 2012.
Described as the ‘Oscars ceremony for London’s movers and shakers’, the awards, which are now in their sixth year, recognise the top firms and individuals in the private wealth sector. The shortlist is based on recommendations by high net worth individuals, industry peers and Spear’s staff. The judging panel consisted of CEOs, QCs and principals of the UK’s top private client firms and has an unrivalled authority to judge the awards.
Sarah Higgins (pictured) and William Longrigg, Joint Heads of the Family Group at Charles Russell LLP commented: “We are thrilled to receive this award and delighted that the hard work of the whole team has been recognised in this way. Family law is continuing to be constantly thrust into the spotlight and is always adapting and developing. We pride ourselves on our strong reputation in this area and we will continue to provide high quality legal advice tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients.”
The family team has a reputation for excellence and is well known for its international and UK work. It advises on a number of issues including divorce and relationship breakdown (including civil partners and unmarried couples), arrangements for children, financial arrangements, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements and alternative dispute resolution.
