Martineau Johnson and Pinsents have won a competitive tender to secure the University of Plymouth as a new client.
Martineau’s has been brought on board to advise the university on employment, corporate, commercial and real estate work.
Meanwhile, Pinsents will advise Plymouth on governance and health-related issues.

Martineau’s head of education Paul Pharaoh and partner John Rice led the teams which secured the contracts.
In a separate move Martineu’s has also won the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and St Anne’s College, Oxford as new clients. The Birmingham-based firm will advise St Anne’s on the financing of a capital project and SOAS on specialist student issues.
