Three new partners in East Mids among five senior promotions

Leading regional law firm, Howes Percival has announced five senior promotions in the East Midlands. 

Miles Barnes, Jeremy Hyde and Jasmine Mason have become Partners, while Neena Jakhu and Rebecca Littlewood have been promoted to the level of Director. 

Geraint Davies, Howes Percival's Chairman commented,

"Many congratulations to everyone on their promotions.  It is fantastic to be able to recognise and reward the hard work, dedication, and invaluable contribution our people make to Howes Percival and our clients in this way. As a firm we are known for promoting from within and to have new Partners that started out as trainees with us less than ten years ago, is a ringing endorsement of that.  

"We have been on a growth trajectory for a number of years now and that is largely down to exceptional people, working really well together. The growth creates opportunities both in terms of promotion and being able to create new jobs at every level within Howes Percival.  We will continue to invest in the firm and in our people who are key to our success and long-term strategy." 

In August 2023, Howes Percival announced a two-year recruitment drive to create up to 50 brand new roles nationally to meet increased demand, while in January this year, the firm opened a new office in Oxford, following the acquisition of specialist commercial, IP & media law firm Maier Blackburn.
