Howes Percival Employment Team Ranked Top!
Our employment team has some great news that we want to share with you...
The 2021 edition of The Legal 500 - the authoritative guide to the UK's leading law firms - has just been published and we are proud to announce that our employment team has retained its status as a top tier law firm for employment services.
The Legal 500 is essentially the clients' guide to the best law firms in the UK and is widely regarded as offering a definitive judgement of law firm capabilities. The guide ranks firms into tiers, with tier 1 being the highest ranking. We are thrilled that Howes Percival's employment team has once again achieved tier 1 status.
In relation to our team, the Legal 500 says:
Howes Percival LLP's team has particular experience of undertaking employment matters for clients in the automotive, food and drink, manufacturing and education sectors. The team handles high-value acquisitions, complex tribunal claims, TUPE, enforcement of restrictive covenants and senior executive exits. Key individuals at the firm include Leicester-based practice head Paula Bailey and Northampton-based partner Graham Irons. Director Alex Payton is praised for his 'professional' and 'approachable' manner.
Howes Percival LLP has employment law capability in both its Cambridge and Norwich offices. The practice focuses mainly on Employment Tribunal claims, in which it acts mainly for employers. 'Highly pragmatic and commercial' practice head Matthew Potter in Cambridge has 25 years' experience, with a particularly strong track record in Employment Tribunal work. He is supported by associates Jonathan Mumby, who frequently acts for senior executives, and Norwich-based Caroline Illing, who focuses predominantly on the automotive sector.
The Milton Keynes team at Howes Percival LLP is known for its work advising clients in further education, the food and drink sector, and the automotive sector on a wide range of matters, such as the employment aspects of high-value and complex acquisitions, disposals, and restructurings, as well as matters regarding senior terminations. It also has a history of dealing with complex tribunal claims and severances for senior executives. Practice leader Simon deMaid focuses on disability discrimination claims and high-value, complex restructures. Director Hannah Pryce is an employment tribunal advocate specialising in sex discrimination and gender pay issues.
Our top tier rating is a great endorsement for the employment team (and the firm as a whole) and we would like to thank our clients for supporting us in achieving this level of success!
