Multilaw, a global network of independent law firms of which Penningtons Manches Cooper is an active member, has been awarded the top-tier ‘elite’ network status in the Chambers Global Guide 2020. This status has been achieved by Multilaw for the sixth year in a row; it is among an exclusive group of just nine organisations worldwide to receive the recognition.
Multilaw is an association of 90 independent law firms across 100 countries that work together to best fulfil international client needs in an ever-changing and increasingly global economy. The Chambers review highlighted the ‘top level service, which is ensured through continual appraisals’ that clients can expect from a Multilaw-accredited firm, and commented on the innovation and integration across all firms within the network when working to deliver the best services possible.
Founded in 1990, Multilaw was created with the concept of bringing together a select group of international law firms to unite individual expertise for a diverse clientele. Businesses, corporate relationships and private clients are increasingly embracing operating across separate continents, cultures, languages and laws, and Multilaw provides a reliable network of experts and wealth of specialist knowledge to enable this style of working.
Charles Brooks, corporate partner at Penningtons Manches Cooper and previous chairman of Multilaw, stated: “This ranking is a testament to not only the quality of the lawyers and the service provided to clients through Multilaw, but also to the collaborative vision and work of the firms within the group and throughout the world. As the global marketplace becomes increasingly interconnected, it becomes vitally important to deliver a truly international service and I am thrilled that Multilaw has been recognised within the industry for doing this.”
