Howes Percival wins major central Government contract as part of PwC consortium

Howes Percival, in consortium with PwC, Holman Fenwick Willan LLP and Sharpe Pritchard LLP, is delighted to have been selected to the Crown Commercial Services General Legal Services Panel for Central Government as a Tier 1 Provider.  

Tessa Haskey, Howes Percival’s Chairman, commented:

“This is a fantastic achievement for the firm.  We are very proud to be part of this consortium, and to extend our Government work so significantly, and I’m really pleased for Alison Kirby and Morris Peacock, the partners who successfully led the firm’s bid. 

We already act on a variety of disputes for two Government departments including very high profile litigation cases, and have instigated landmark decisions in both the High Court and Court of Appeal. 

Over the last three years we have strengthened our regional offering, investing in new offices and broadening our expertise with some eye-catching hires.  This win supports that strategy, as well as recognising our national reputation in key specialisms and our already strong working relationship with the Government.  It is a massive boost for the firm and everyone involved in the bid, and will open up new opportunities for us across the country.”
