eprivateclient, the leading news service for private client practitioners, has once again named Penningtons Manches in its list of Top 25 Law Firms. The rankings follow a survey of over 125 legal practices in the UK, assessing a combination of factors including the number of private client fee earners and private client fee income as a percentage of total revenue.
Also included in the survey was an analysis of the number of partners across a broad cross section of private client legal work, from traditional components such as trusts, wills and tax to related areas such as family, immigration and contentious matters.
According to eprivateclient, the survey results, which are based on data for 2015, demonstrate that organisations in the private wealth sector are continuing to thrive despite operating in an increasingly challenging environment.
Penningtons Manches’ private client team is witnessing success on an individual level as well as collectively. James d’Aquino, a specialist adviser to high net worth individuals, trustees and family offices, was recently promoted to the position of partner at the firm. James was one of three members of the private client team recognised in eprivateclient’s ‘Top 35 under 35’ for 2015. Associate director Adrian Moss, who manages Penningtons Manches' trust and personal tax administration team, and senior associate Stuart Adams, an expert in UK and international tax planning, were also ranked in this list.
