Just seven months after Penningtons joined forces with Manches in October 2013, Penningtons Manches LLP has won the Citywealth Magic Circle Award for Law Firm of the Year at the annual awards dinner at the Grange Hotel St Paul’s on 8 May.
This is the firm’s latest accolade since the beginning of 2014 which started on a high note with chief executive David Raine making The Lawyer’s Hot 100 List for his leadership role in the firm’s expansion. Penningtons Manches was also named again as one of eprivateclient's Top 25 Most Admired Companies and Top 25 Private Client Law Firms, recognising the 'biggest and the best' in the industry. Private client and tax partners and other team members feature in the Top 25 Lawyers, Top 20 Women, 50 Most Influential and Top 35 Under 35 lists as well as other industry specific rankings.
Private client and tax partner Lesley Lintott, commenting on the firm’s win, said: “We are thrilled to have received this prestigious award from Citywealth and the private wealth community, particularly in view of the calibre of the other teams on the shortlist. Our thanks for the recognition of the skills and experience of our private client and tax group go to all our clients, professional colleagues and friends.”
