Howes Percival has added Leicester financial litigation Partner Alistair Haggerty to its Dispute Resolution team in the city.


Alistair specialises in financial litigation with an emphasis on secured asset recovery, including property, plant and machinery and domestic and commercial vehicles, and has a wealth of experience litigating claims in the County Courts, High Courts and Court of Appeal as well as appearing as Solicitor-Advocate in County and High Courts across the country.


He assists lender clients in the swift enforcement of defaulting debtors in respect of secured lending, unsecured cash flow and cash advance agreements, pursuing debtors to obtain judgment, and securing charging orders against company property or property owned by company directors both in the UK and overseas.


In addition to acting for commercial and tertiary lenders such as peer-to-peer funders, brokers and asset finance companies, Alistair regularly acts for a variety of commercial clients including partnerships, LLPs, owner managed SMEs, limited companies, public companies and merchant banks. 


Howes Percival Partner Katie Summers, commented, 

We are absolutely delighted to bring Alistair to Howes Percival. He has a wealth of experience in secured asset recovery, including property, plant and machinery and vehicles. He also has significant expertise in the area of enforcement, in particular receiverships.  This is a specialism we are looking to develop and provide clients with a holistic approach to their secured assets and the recovery of the same as and when required.

We are looking to work with commercial lenders, funding houses and brokers who may know of companies who would benefit from the recovery expertise Alistair is able to provide. Conditions in the property market, particularly, have been difficult of late and those who have lent money in return for security over property, need to act quickly in these scenarios. Having people who know this market and how best to realise an asset, is key to ensuring a safe return for any sums loaned.
