Charles Russell Speechlys promotes six in City-heavy round

Charles Russell Speechlys has made up six lawyers to partnership in its third promotions round since the merger.

All new partners are based in London – except real estate lawyer Naomi Nettleton who is based in Cheltenham.

Business services lawyer Paul Arathoon and construction lawyer Rupa Lakha are both understood to have trained at either Charles Russell or Speechly Bircham, while private property lawyer Sakhjit Randhawa has become head of the firm’s new development team.

Real estate lawyer Helen Hutton moved over to the firm after training at Slaughter and May, while construction senior associate Michael O’Connor started off his career at Kennedys.

The promotions round is smaller than last year in which nine new lawyers were made up in London and Guildford.

The year before the newly-merged firm made up five lawyers including three from Charles Russell and two from Speechly Bircham.
