Penningtons Manches Cooper


PENNINGTONS MANCHES COOPER LLP is a leading UK and international law firm with a focus on private wealth. We offer innovative, clear and tailored advice across a full spectrum of legal services. Our personal service is founded on a strong team ethic.

Private wealth is at the heart of our business. It is in our DNA. Penningtons Manches Cooper is the ‘go to’ firm for individuals, their families, family offices and private wealth firms who require high quality, and frequently pioneering, advice on complicated legal issues. Our continuing commitment to excellence is backed by a track record which dates back nearly 300 years.


We enable our clients to safeguard, grow and future-proof their wealth, addressing both short-term challenges and long-term strategies. Our warm personal service means that we have strong relationships with our clients, built up over many years.

Many of our clients have used our firm for generations and we advise on the transfer of wealth and responsibility to the next generation. Our clients appreciate our open and sensitive approach to bringing family members together to start conversations about their hopes and fears for the future.


We understand that every family or family business – regardless of their wealth – has issues and challenges that need to be resolved and we are not afraid to think creatively about their situation and work collaboratively with our colleagues to find solutions that work for all the family members and business owners.

Increasingly clients require a broader perspective as the lines between commercial and privately owned assets blur. We draw upon expertise from across the firm, working collaboratively to offer a completely integrated and bespoke service.


International mobility and multijurisdictional interests are realities of modern life for many of our clients.

We have a strong international capability, assisting UK resident and non-resident, non-domiciled individuals, international families and family offices and business owners in numerous countries across the globe.
