The Penningtons Manches life sciences team has won its third consecutive award from Corporate INTL, a leading business magazine circulated to more than 70,000 business leaders, professional advisers, investors and in-house counsel globally. The latest accolade is for ‘Client Choice: Life Sciences law firm of the Year 2015’ which follows on from its 2014 award for the same category and its 2013 ‘UK Mid-Market: Life Sciences law firm of the year for England’ award.
The team also won the Global Law Experts’ award for Life Sciences Law Firm of the Year in England (Client Choice category) in 2013 and 2014 bringing its current haul of trophies to five in the last 18 months.
Global Law Experts is the premier guide to leading attorneys throughout the world. It 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.
Commenting on the Oxford-based team’s success, partner Jim Kinnier-Wilson said: “2014 has been a great year for us. Not only have we advised a number of long-standing clients on transactions and litigation - including Adaptimmune and Immunocore on ground-breaking deals with global pharma companies such as GlaxoSmithKline and Eli Lilly respectively - but we have also been fortunate to receive excellent client feedback and industry recognition.”
