On 15 October 2013, Penningtons Solicitors LLP and Manches LLP joined forces to become one of the dominant legal players in London and the South East. The deal captured headlines across both the national and trade press and brought 115 partners and over 600 staff together in seven locations.
Today, Penningtons Manches LLP celebrates its first anniversary with a drinks reception for staff and an internal staff publication entitled ‘One Year Forward 2014 Annual Review’, a 20 page retrospective of the achievements, accolades and high profile business wins of the firm’s first 12 months. The external version of the annual review will be published at the end of October.
Chief executive David Raine, commenting on the anniversary, said: “I have been extremely impressed by the professionalism, dedication and commonality of purpose shown by all our staff over the last 12 months and I am very proud of what we have achieved together. Much has been accomplished and much more is to come – both in the UK and internationally. Not only is Pennningtons Manches ‘better together’ but ‘the best is yet to come’.”
