Howes Percival LLP’s team handles a range of matters, from redundancy, restructuring and TUPE processes to multi-party claims and discrimination disputes. Restrictive covenant enforcement and the negotiation and management of senior executive exits are other areas of focus. The group's clients primarily consist of private sector companies, although it is also adept at advising public sector clients. Practice head Paula Bailey, Graham Irons and director Alex Payton form the heart of the practice, with associate Hannah Pryce providing key support. In recent work, the department assisted Marston’s with TUPE issues related to the client’s acquisition of Charles Wells’ brewery, beer brands, canning and bottling plant, and warehouse facilities. Another highlight was defending Integrated Doorset Solutions in tribunal proceedings regarding TUPE claims brought by over 150 claimants in the context of the acquisition of a number of assets from an administrator. The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, Mercedes-Benz and Weatherbys are also clients.
