Charles Russell Speechlys in Guildford has received outstanding endorsements from three prestigious legal ratings guides, used by businesses and individuals to select the best law firms in the region.

Legal 500 described the firm as a ‘key name’ in the South East and Chambers UK called it a ‘regional powerhouse’.

Both directories maintain top rankings for the firm’s key practice areas, with its corporate, commercial dispute resolution, insolvency and private client teams highlighted as market leaders alongside the contentious trusts and estates team. Additionally, the firm’s property practice, one of the largest in the region, maintains top rankings in both directories for construction and property litigation, as well as praise for its commercial property lawyers.

Alongside team rankings, both directories highlight individual partners and associates in Guildford as leaders in their field with 29 lawyers recognised in Legal 500 as specialists or ‘next generation’ lawyers and 12 lawyers ranked in Chambers as ‘notable practitioners’ or ‘associates to watch’.

In Chambers High Net Worth – a widely researched publication aimed at the international private wealth market - the firm was recognised in band 1 for private wealth law in Guildford, and praised for being “approachable, clear in communication, competitive in pricing and an excellent team.”

Commenting on the achievements, Duncan Elson said: “These legal ratings guides are highly respected, invaluable resources for individuals when choosing their advisors. As such, we are delighted to receive such strong recognition in them for our expertise. This is a significant external endorsement of individuals and teams at Charles Russell Speechlys in Guildford and a real testament to the quality of our legal advice and the personal approach we offer to clients.”
