Penningtons Manches Cooper represents a diverse list of international clients - ranging from multi-national corporations and global trading houses to high net worth individuals and superyacht owners. Our international capability is enhanced by our membership of two non-exclusive legal associations - Multilaw and the European Law Group - enabling us to support clients wherever they live or do business.

With offices in the strategically-located global cities of London, Madrid, Paris, Piraeus, San Francisco, Sao Paulo and Singapore, our corporate, immigration, international trade, shipping, dispute resolution, employment, property, private client and family teams provide an integrated international service for businesses and individuals.

Our multidisciplinary and multilingual lawyers and associates throughout Europe, America and Asia can advise and guide you through a broad spectrum of business and personal matters, from setting up your business, hiring overseas nationals, trading in all types of commodities, and handling any calamity or claims relating to operating ships, to managing your wealth, relocating your family, and restructuring your tax and personal affairs.

Through our active involvement with the Department for International Trade and its UK Advisory Network (UKAN), we are well placed to advise on all aspects of inward investment, from technology start-ups to large international relocations. We have particular expertise in supporting US clients seeking to do business in the UK and Europe. In addition, our India group provides expert advice on entry and exit strategies for the Indian market and investments from India into the UK and Europe. Where problems occur, in any jurisdiction, our international litigation lawyers are able to recommend effective strategies at an early stage.

The international private wealth and family teams have dedicated specialists in the wide range of complex issues relating to wealth protection and investment. They advise on the use of offshore trusts and corporate structures for asset protection, privacy and security and how these issues relate to your business or your family. As five partners in our international family law team are fellows of the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL), we are perfectly placed to assist overseas clients with any questions about how the English legal system might apply to them.

Backed by experience spanning nearly 200 years, our highly regarded shipping lawyers act for clients across the global maritime sector including ship and superyacht owners, charterers, P&I clubs, international agencies, port operators, marine insurance underwriters, governments and brokers. They provide a comprehensive legal service in all aspects of maritime law and a dedicated 24/7 emergency response team.

Our international trade and commodity finance practice also has a long track record of operating in key jurisdictions around the world. We offer specialist trading and finance advice to global traders and banks involved in all types of commodities, from oil and gas, chemicals, metals and mining to sugar, grain and timber, assisting them in maximising their commercial success.
