Howes Percival LLP's three-partner East Midlands team has a strong track record in government insolvency work, and retains a place on the Insolvency Service Panel; the scope of the firm's work includes public interest winding-up matters involving large-scale frauds and director disqualification proceedings, among other matters. In addition, the firm is also a supplier to the Government's Crown Commercial Service panel as part of a consortium, taking the lead on insolvency matters. Beyond government-related mandates, the team handles the gamut of contentious and non-contentious personal and corporate insolvency issues for insolvency practitioners, businesses (ranging in size from sole traders to listed companies) and business owners, as well as creditors.
