Our client-focused philosophy

Pannone Corporate was created in 2014 by a management buy-out from a top 50 UK law firm to offer you:

genuine commitment to understanding your business, needs and culture

practical, clear, commercial advice with sensible fee structures

first class client service delivered by committed and emotionally intelligent lawyers

A culture of client service

All law firms like to say they are different. We are.

Why? Because mutually beneficial long-term client relationships drive us, not simply financial outcomes. Our lawyers are enabled to invest time in building close client relationships without being “on the clock”.

We believe that only by listening and really understanding your business properly can we offer an exceptional service. You want advice in plain English which offers practical commercial solutions. We won‘t sit on the fence when it comes to our advice.

We want you to feel like you are our most important client. Only when we achieve this do we know we have got it right.

“We get the impression that we are important ­­- we don’t get that from other firms. That makes me want to put work their way. We feel like we really matter to them.”

Anthony Buxton, Brother International
