Citywealth Leaders List places Charles Russell as a top firm in the wealth sector
04 Mar, 2013
Charles Russell LLP has today announced that 30 Charles Russell partners and consultants have been named as industry leaders by the prestigious Citywealth Leaders List 2013. This marks a dramatic year on year increase for the firm, with 13 listed in 2011 and 21 last year.
Citywealth is a media group that provides news, profiles and feature articles from global experts in the wealth management sector. Each year the magazine researches and publishes lists of recommended advisers in the sector. The Citywealth Leaders List, now in its eighth edition, is compiled through a detailed submission and research process, with input from a huge number of people within the private wealth management sector (peers in law firms, accountants, family offices and financial institutions) as well as their clients.
Charles Russell ranked second highest on the list in terms of leading individuals. Only Withers scored higher with 41 of their partners and consultants recognised. Firms Farrer & Co and Baker & McKenzie followed behind Charles Russell with 25 and 22 respectively.
There were nine new entrants from Charles Russell this year, including George Duncan, who was named as a Prominent Figure in the Main Leading Lawyers Category. Andy Slatter, Christian Massey, David Savage and Shaima Jillood were all newly recognised in the Leading Lawyers category of Landed Estates and Property and Duncan Lamont was also named as a Leading Lawyer in Reputation Management. New entrants to the Matrimonial and Family sector included Richard Collins and James Riby who were both listed in the Prominent Figures category.
Bart Peerless (pictured), Head of Private Wealth at Charles Russell said: “We are delighted to receive this industry recognition reflecting our leading position in the private wealth sector.”
