Leading regional law firm, Howes Percival, has announced two promotions in its Norwich-based insolvency team. William Shirley has been promoted to partner and Leon Head has qualified as a solicitor into the team.
William Shirley joined Howes Percival in 2004. He has 14 years’ experience acting for Government Departments, including the Insolvency Service and HMRC. He has acted for the Insolvency Service in high profile and complex directors’ disqualification proceedings and also winding up companies that are trading contrary to the public interest. William also deals with a broad range of contentious and non-contentious corporate and personal insolvency matters.
Leon Head has successfully completed a two-year training contract with the firm, whose work includes advising the Government on proceedings following on from the failure of BHS, and will specialise in contentious insolvency matters.
Morris Peacock, partner at Howes Percival, commented:
“William’s expertise has been an integral part of the development of our insolvency work and we are pleased to welcome Leon into the team”.
Howes Percival Chairman, Tessa Haskey, commented:
“At Howes Percival, we are committed to investing in and developing our people, so I’m delighted to announce these promotions which recognise William and Leon’s hard work and contribution to the team.”
