Squeezed by the competition in Manchester? Partners threatening to leave unless they get more of the cake? Tried and failed in London before? So burnt that expansion was shunned for years? Solution – go into an even more difficult market than Manchester, a market where far bigger players from the regions have tried and failed.

The economy is going to meltdown and there will be entire firms going out of business. Reply Link Sarah Sharpe and Sandra Sinclair 10 January 2012 at 18:04 We will miss the Pannone presence – but thankfully some of them are still very much around to keep the rest of us local lawyers on the Edge company. Small (overheads) is beautiful for once? Reply Link Anonymous 10 January 2012 at 19:00 I used to work there and I can confirm Pannone is a great firm to work for. Like many, they have been hit hard in recent years. Going by what people are telling me, even though times are tough there is a feeling the right decisions have been made to secure the future of the firm. I wish them the best of luck, Reply Link Suicide Blonde 11 January 2012 at 17:14 Will they get smoked in the smoke? Only time will tell. Reply Link Annon 17 January 2012 at 20:13 I am appalled with the some of the snarky reader comments. I don’t work at Pannone, and to be frank, I hadn’t heard of it either before reading this article. But that doesn’t give bored city lawyers the right to make sarcastic and ego-inflating posts denigrating the firm, particularly at such a sensitive time when people are at risk of losing their jobs. Some of you really need to grow up, and learn how to be empathetic, it’s like talking to 13 year olds.

I am confident of a positive outlook ahead for the firm with many of the changes being long overdue. Reply Link John Greenwood 16 June 2012 at 19:07 As a past customer of Pannone I have the utmost admiration for the way they treat their customers and the professional way they conduct their business. Pannone took on my case when others would not, they succeeded and obtained the highest possible obtainable result. I was treated with understanding and kindness throughout the whole process, Pannone certainly have my vote as being the best of the legal firms in Manchester.
