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.
