Varied perspectives help us to build constructive working relationships.
David is the chief executive of Penningtons Manches and, as such, is responsible with other members of the management board for overseeing the development and implementation of the firm’s strategy and direction as well as the day to day management of the business.
Much of the management team’s attention is currently focused on integrating the newly-expanded firm behind a shared vision and strategy. The strategy is developing and progressing and will continue to centre around our key sectors and niche teams as well as a steadily increasing flow of work from international sources.
In addition, we are continually expanding the work we do alongside our key clients to improve what we do and how we do it. Our ultimate aim is to be regarded as a trusted legal adviser whose input is highly valued by our clients and delivered at a sustainable cost and price.
Prior to taking on the chief executive role in 2008, David’s legal experience included a couple of decades as a tort lawyer specialising in clinical negligence cases as well as overseeing tortious and contractual claims arising from accidents abroad.
