Russell-Cooke has been recognised as one of the best private client legal teams in the UK by online publication eprivateclient. This is the firm's tenth successive ranking amongst the 16 best firms in the UK.

eprivateclient, a leading website and news service for private client practitioners, recognises UK law firms providing high-quality and professional private client services in the UK.

The rankings are based on data received on areas such as number of partners, number of fee earners, total number of staff and total fee income.

Private clients represent a significant proportion of Russell-Cooke's client base. The firm's team of 129 fee earners (including 32 partners) was enhanced by eight new solicitor hires over the 2019/2020 financial year, including partner Julie Man who joined the Kingston office in March.

Private client work represented 55% of the firm's total income.

Partner Andrew Godfrey comments: “We're very pleased to have been named alongside the very top names in this field of law in the country. Many of our private clients have been with us for generations and we hope that we will be acting for our newer clients for many years to come. Our focus is on the quality of those relationships as much as it is in the quality of our legal advice. Both are key to our client service offering. We're delighted to have also welcomed newly-qualified solicitors into private client teams this year proving that this is a practice type with a very long history but equally a very bright future. ”
