Helen Drayton

Spear’s Review

A corporate lawyer and formerly head of the firm’s business services division, Helen Drayton was confirmed as the new chief executive of Penningtons Manches Cooper in April 2022.

The full-service law firm is recognised as a leading light in several key fields, not least its celebrated family law and private client teams. As chief executive, Drayton was tasked with developing a ‘shared vision and strategy’ for the firm, as well as expanding its overseas presence.

There is no doubt that Drayton comes well-prepared. Prior to taking the top job, she sat on Pennington Manches Coopers’ management board for four years, playing a particularly active role in the firm’s international expansion and working closely with her predecessor, David Raine.
