Carey Olsen's Russell Clark named as one of the UK's 50 most influential private client advisers

Carey Olsen Guernsey managing partner Russell Clark has been named one of the 2020 eprivateclient '50 Most Influential'.

Described as the definitive rankings of the key players in the UK and UK Crown Dependencies' private client practitioner sector, the '50 Most Influential' includes advisers from the wealth management, accountancy, legal, trust and family law sectors.

Russell, who heads up the trusts and private wealth practice in Guernsey, is the only Guernsey-based lawyer to make the list. He specialises in both contentious and non-contentious trust matters and advising private clients on succession and estate planning.

Commenting on the achievement, Russell said: "I am thrilled to have been recognised by eprivateclient alongside so many outstanding professionals in the private client industry. My individual recognition is testament to the hard work and dedication of my colleagues not only in the Guernsey team but also the wider trusts and private wealth group at Carey Olsen."

Prior to this latest accolade, Russell was named Crown Dependencies lawyer of the year at the 2019 Citywealth International Finance Centre Awards earlier this year, and was the only lawyer in Guernsey to attain a Band 1 ranking in the 2019 edition of the Chambers and Partners High Net Worth guide.
