“We’re delighted to be ranked so highly across a large number of core practice areas with 10 practice areas featuring in tiers three and above.

“The team continues to deliver exceptional work for our clients and this is shown in the number of individuals who are recognised by the Legal 500 – whether that’s seasoned professionals, or future talent coming through the ranks. What’s always particularly pleasing is the number of positive comments that are made by clients, which feature so prominently in this year’s research.”

Standout comments include:

‘This company really does work together to get the best advice and knowledge to give the client the best service and outcome.’

‘Pannone are highly professional, committed and thorough. Very personable and highly experienced, they cleverly see around corners and help protect concepts, IP and business projects for the future. Good to have alongside any venture.’

‘This practice exceeds all expectations and always meets our needs in full. There are a range of specialists available who always deliver exactly what we need.’

‘They know what we do, how we operate and have made themselves indispensable. They see risks, opportunities and weaknesses that we don’t; they go over and above the brief.’

‘The team’s strength lies in efficiently making complex matters understandable and providing practical tools to achieve the desired goal.’

‘Pannone Corporate strikes nicely the fine balance between the big law firm capacity to handle a complex case without losing the small law firm responsiveness and personal touch. They work and communicate well as a team. High-profile commercial litigators.’

‘Pannone Corporate is a firm with an extremely strong presence in property litigation. They have an excellent client base in the North West of England and are strong enough to take on a wide range of clients from around the country. The firm has achieved prominence through building in-depth expertise in its chosen fields.’

A six-strong Pannone team took part in the annual Manchester Legal Walk earlier this week, to raise money for the North West Legal Support Trust – the local arm of the Access to Justice Foundation, which funds local advice services.

Money raised from the 10km walk, which started at Manchester Civil Justice Centre, before heading out to Chorlton-on-Medlock and finishing at the Manchester Chamber of Commerce, will be used to help local agencies keep operating and provide access to justice to as many people as possible.

The event, which involves both legal professionals and justice advocates, takes place each year in 27 cities across the UK, including Liverpool, Leeds, London, Birmingham and Glasgow.

Ben Blatch-Hanlon, a solicitor in the dispute resolution team, has taken part in a number of walks in three previous locations. He was responsible for organising the team’s involvement in this year’s event. Walkers included Lorna Shuttleworth, James Brandwood, Georgina Bligh-Smith, Heather Morris, and Emma Hafez.

Ben said: “The Legal Walk is a fantastic industry event to be involved in, raising much-needed funds and awareness of a vital service that has been severely affected by the pandemic.

“Through the charitable efforts of the legal and justice profession, we can play a small part in helping to fund a service that offers free advice to some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in society – making a huge difference to their lives.”

The Legal Advice agencies work to help prevent homelessness, resolving debt problems, gaining care for the elderly and disabled and fighting exploitation.

Chambers and Partners identifies the best law firms globally, from multi-nationals to boutiques. Underpinned by independent research and analysis of feedback from clients, peers and the wider market, Chambers produces annual rankings of teams and individuals according to their area of specialism.

 

The rankings take into account: client service; technical legal ability; depth of team; commercial vision and business understanding; diligence and value for money. The results of Chambers 2021 have been announced with strong results for individual lawyers and departments at Pannone Corporate.

 

Commenting on this year’s results, senior partner Paul Jonson said: “Pannone Corporate is punching well above its weight in this year’s Chambers rankings. When you compare our team to the firms ranked at the same level as us, we have nearly twice as many individuals named – as a proportion of our headcount – than our closest regional counterpart.

 

“I’d like to congratulate the colleagues who have been recognised and our team as a whole. Our people are our greatest asset. Put them together, and it creates something that is even more compelling than the sum of its parts.”
