The award-winning Penningtons Manches’ life sciences team has won Global Law Experts’ award for Life Sciences Law Firm of the Year in England 2014 in the Client Choice category.
Global Law Experts (GLE) is the premier guide to leading attorneys throughout the world. It is the only organisation that recommends just one legal expert in each key practice area and country and now recommends over 2,000 lawyers from 140 countries in over 50 practice areas.
According to GLE, the award is the result of an extensive nomination and research process for the 2014 Global Law Experts Awards. The awards panel convened in May 2014 to select the winners. The shortlisted firms were judged on client testimonials, key cases from the past 12 months, legal rankings, overall reputation, publication contributions, speaking engagements and the performance and standing of the team’s individual lawyers.
During the recommendations stage, Penningtons Manches received widespread support from business directors, in-house legal counsel, independent law firms, high net-worth individuals, bar associations, visitors to the GLE website and LinkedIn users. These recommendations were combined with GLE’s own independent research in order to create a shortlist of firms for each award.
Commenting on this latest accolade, Jim Kinnier Wilson, partner specialising in life sciences, said: “While successes typically come in threes, we are honoured and delighted to win our fourth award acknowledging our expertise - particularly as we were selected on the strength of feedback from our clients and peers within the life sciences industry.”
