Wednesday 18 January 1995
Pannone changes Pannone & Partners has announced a "looser association" within the practice. Pritchard Englefield & Tobin and Pannone March Pearson merged in September 1992 to form Pannone & Partners. Now the firm says that, on balance, its best interests and those of its clients lie in its constituent parts going forward in a looser association. The London office now practises as Pannone Pritchard Englefield while in Manchester the Pannone & Partners name remains. These changes, the partners say, will provid e more manageable firms in each location, although both remain on close terms.
