Commenting on the firm’s rankings Howes Percival’s chairman, Tessa Haskey said; “It’s  a fantastic set of rankings and recommendations – and something that the whole the firm can be rightly proud of.  Our core strengths have again been recognised and the recommendations across 18 different practice areas show the wide range of services we now offer, as well as the depth of knowledge and expertise available.

“We’ve invested in all our offices again this year.  In East Anglia we’ve built on our existing offering in Norwich and the addition of Cambridge helps us cover the region even more comprehensively.  In Milton Keynes we’re now able to provide a genuine legal alternative in another key commercial centre.  While in Leicester and Northampton we have strengthened our teams and been involved in some of the largest deals in the region.”
