Pannones posts record half-year figures

North West firm Pannone & Partners recorded a turnover increase of 15 per cent for the first six months of 2004-2005, on target for a record £32m for the full year.

Pannone’s employment department has increased income by 35 per cent, with the litigation team following closely behind with a 34 per cent increase.

The firm has seen steady growth over the last few years, with turnover increasing by £4.8m (19 per cent) between 2003 and 2004. In 2004 Pannones made five new lateral hires, including the appointment of Mace & Jones’s Andrew Rimmer as construction head.

Managing partner Joy Kingsley said the growth was part of Pannones’ strategy to develop commercial work.
