Charles Russell Speechlys

The Firm

Charles Russell Speechlys is a law firm headquartered in London with offices in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. We have an unusually broad range of skills and experience across the full spectrum of business and personal needs. This gives us a wider perspective, clear insight and a strongly commercial long-term view. We use this approach to secure the growth of our clients as they move confidently into the future. 

It has made us a leader in the world of dynamic growth and family businesses, and among the world’s leading creators and owners of private wealth and their families. Major corporates and institutions find our more considered and personal approach a refreshing alternative to conventional business law firms.

Training Contract

At Charles Russell Speechlys we provide a practical learning environment for trainees where emphasis is given to early responsibility and supervised client contact. The two-year training contract is divided into four seats, giving trainees the opportunity to experience a range of different practice areas before qualification. Throughout the training contract there are regular meetings and reviews between the trainees and their supervisors to ensure they are continuing to receive a broad range of quality work. This, together with our in-house training programme, the Charles Russell Speechlys Skills Academy, ensures that our trainees develop the required skills and knowledge to become successful lawyers. 

Who should apply

We require candidates to achieve a minimum of a 2(1) in their degree and be able to demonstrate other key attributes outside of academia, such as teamwork, leadership, communication skills and initiative. People come to us from all backgrounds and degree disciplines, with a range of views that combine to give us our distinctive perspective on the law.
