Russell-Cooke has been nominated for a 2008 Legal Business award in the category of Corporate Social Responsibility Firm of the Year. The nomination recognises the firm's commitment to publicly funded work which accounts for some 10% of its work.

Russell-Cooke was listed in the Legal Business top 100 law firms in 2007 and was singled out for its distinctive culture which aims to make the firm financially secure without being profit-driven. Tight internal controls keep the firm's overheads and fees at sensible levels ensuring that clients get best value and the firm can maintain its commitment to publicly funded childcare, family, personal injury, clinical negligence and criminal litigation work.
