For a firm with a long history of private client work, it is notable that Charles Russell has not made up any candidates in the practice in the past four years. In 2004-05 it took a team from Stephenson Harwood in that area, but has made little advancement since. Instead the focus turned to corporate/commercial, where it promoted eight in the past three years, and employment/pensions, where four have been made up over the same period. Female associates also fared well, scooping three of the five promotions in 2006-07.
