The Department of Trade and Industry has selected Howes Percival for a three year contract with The Insolvency Service of England and Wales. This extends a relationship bet-ween Howes Percival and the DTI that stretches back to 1994.
The work involves advising on and carrying out proceedings against former directors of failed companies under the Company Dire-ctors Disqualification Act 1986.
Howes Percival was awarded the contract for Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambrid-geshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckin-ghamshire as well as half of the cases issued in the High Court in London.
Howes Percival will be part of a panel of just five companies who advise on all such cases on behalf of the DTI across England and Wales.
Andrew Barnes, managing partner of Howes Percival’s East Anglia region, said: “The competition is fierce for this kind of work so to win the contract across such a large area, including the High Court cases, is a major vote of confidence in our approach.”
