Howes Percival celebrates 25 years in Leicester

Leading commercial law firm, Howes Percival is marking 25 years of its Leicester office with 25 events to celebrate and give back to the city, including volunteer days and events to raise money for local charities.

The launch event took place on 20 May when the firm’s Intellectual Property & IT team undertook a 25 mile walk around Rutland Water. Other events planned throughout the year include a sports day, a STEM event to connect schools with high performance engineering companies in Leicester and a Diwali celebration.

The events will centre around five themes which reflects the city’s unique identity:

•           Arts and culture

•           Environment

•           Technology and innovation

•           Education and community

•           Sport

The money raised from fundraising activities in 2022 will support the RSPCA Leicestershire Branch, Woodside Animal Centre, which cares for mistreated, abandoned and neglected animals in Leicestershire and Rutland.

Howes Percival’s Leicester office opened in July 1997 with a team of six lawyers. Today, over 60 of the firm’s staff are employed at its Meridian Business Park office, providing the full range of corporate and family law services.

Chairperson and Leicester partner, Geraint Davies said, “When it came to marking 25 years of Howes Percival being in Leicester, we wanted to shine a spotlight on what makes it a fantastic city to live, work and do business in. We saw this as an opportunity, not only to recognise our Leicester office’s achievements, but to give back something meaningful to the community. Our people have been integral to planning the celebrations and the whole office has come together in a true team effort to support the 25 events taking place throughout the year.”
