Penningtons Manches’ international clients range from private individuals, owner managed businesses and start-ups to global corporations, public companies, banks and financial institutions. As a member of two non-exclusive legal associations - Multilaw and the European Law Group – it has links with lawyers in more than 50 commercial centres around the world.
Commenting on the new affiliation, Penningtons Manches corporate partner Matt Martin said: We are delighted to join forces with COBCOE.

We very much look forward to working with COBCOE and developing our relationship in the future."
