Chris O

PROFILE

Chris has been with Russells since being taken on as an articled clerk in 1980 and is now the Senior Partner.

From his beginnings as a commercial solicitor focusing almost exclusively on the music industry, his role and areas of expertise have expanded significantly, although he draws almost all of his clientele from the entertainment and media industries.

His clients number some of the greatest talents of their generation to include artists, writers, composers, sportsmen and executives as well as clients drawn from the business world of highly successful companies (independent and major) and other organisations within the world of entertainment from music, film, theatre and book publishing through to sport, the restaurant business and many other fields.

Whilst concentrating as much as possible upon advising and representing his many and varied clients he has also been involved in guiding and leading Russells for the past ten years.

Chris is justly proud of the exceptionally talented team of people around him and of the progress that Russells has made and continues to make, notwithstanding the recent turbulent times affecting the world economy generally, as well as the individual problems faced by the various sectors of the entertainment industry. Russells continues to grow and Chris remains as excited and optimistic about the future as ever.
